    In typical MS fashion the entire page is covered in crap with the demonstration video on the right hand side.

    Anyone who puts finger marks on my screen will get the smackdown.

    You can use more than one finger and you can have multiple people working on the same touch screen.
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    I dont see why not. Its a good leap to allow people to work with others on the same application and of course allowing for more fingers to be used leads to a richer and more varied experience for the user.

    Sounds a bit like an excerpt from a MS press release toward the end (or a PR person being evasive)
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    The good thing about people touching your screen is as they lean in to do so there ear usually gets real close to your mouth, so bite the ****er.

    Or yell WHAT THE **** DO YOU THINK YOUR ****IN DOING?

    And no, I dont want to work directly on the screen, I like to see what I'm doing, besides, that would require lifting my arm, and right now its resting on my mouse,keyword:resting.
