Windows 7, the successor to Microsoft's PC operating system Windows Vista, is to feature touch-screen technology, a Microsoft team member has stated.
Previously codenamed Blackcomb and Vienna, Windows 7 will also, according to Bill Gates, include "a pervasive typing line that will recognise the sentence that [the user is] typing in".
Given the success of the Nintendo DS and the way its touch-screen has allowed new possibilities for gameplay, this promised feature could open the doors for a whole new way of gaming on the PC.
Hmmmm its a step forward in some respects, but will only really work if we are all using tablets by then; for the usual desktop and notebook market's, it will have very little, if any, advantages over current control systems. Digital Spy Report
