I love and depend on my Tablet PC with the nice inking capability to get my work done. The next generation of the Tablet OS is on its way and I think it a good idea to solicit ideas from you about your Tablets and what you’d like to see changed with the way it works. If you had a magic wand what one thing would you change about your Tablet, either the hardware or the software? My wish is simple and may be addressed already by Vista- I wish the floating TIP icon would not constantly get in my way when I’m working. Let me know what you would change and when we get enough responses we’ll take a look at what we know about Vista and see which ones are already addressed.

  1. Hey James,

    I think your request has already been met; I’ve not had any problems with the TIP icon getting in the way in Vista. In fact, it was only when I read that in your blog entry that it occurred to me that “Hey, that thing is nicer now”.

    I’ve already mentioned on my blog a few things I’d like to see, but the main one has got to be for Microsoft to tablet enable all the apps that ship with the OS. Think about it – an ink enabled calculator would be cool wouldn’t it? Ink enabling calculator and contacts would being a GoBinder like experience to those tools which would be great out of the box. Also, surprisingly Windows Mail is not ink enabled and I really think it should be instead of forcing users to buy Outlook 2003 or the entire office suite.

    You’ll see a few similar requests when I get around to posting the IE7 overview as well.

    Keep up the good work James,

    Pete
