Longhorn to add touchscreen support for Tablets

1 Comment

Microsoft is putting touchscreen support in Longhorn to give Tablet PCs a dual mode screen for inking.  Tablets running Longhorn will have both active digitizers and touchscreens to offer the best of both worlds.  Microsoft demonstrated a Fujitsu Tablet PC running Longhorn with added touchscreen support at WinHEC earlier this week.

Not only is adding touch screen support,but new methods for UI control and interoperability called “Flicks” moving in quick diagonal movements will paste by moving NE,move SE delete, NW copy, SW undo a great addition! Plus scratch out in the TIP, a feature I have been waiting for since the TIP isn’t 100% in recognition,but close…
