Windows 7 Could Bring Touchscreens to The Mainstream

The information transfers, pictures, music, the Internet, sheer POWER at your fingertips. All those iTouch and iPhone users out there, you know what I’m talking about, and if you’re anything like me, the one complaint you had about those was the size of the screen. Well complain no longer!

Tablets have been trailblazers since they’ve been introduced to consumer markets and there have been a few brand-specific touchscreen laptops. However, many retail touchscreen laptops rely on their own personal software, and thus, have been brand specific. The Windows 7 software package, however,  might make touchscreen more mainstream, with its built in support for touchscreen systems.

And it’s not just for two-fingers either; the software supports three or even four finger use, though admittedly, there’s somewhat of a lack of programs that take advantage of this right now. If multi-touchscreens take off though, that all could change quite fast.
