Video: Multi-Touch in Windows 7


The next version of Windows (Windows 7) was demoed briefly by Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, while talking with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at All Things Digital Conference. Microsoft showed off the new multitouch features of the OS that they have adapted from Surface computer built by the company. The initial look and feel of the multitouch system is very similiar to iPhone's multitouch interface. When Mossberg mentioned about Apple's multitouch interface Ballmer replied "There's a lot in Windows 7, and our goal's got to be with our hardware partners, to produce fantastic PCs... We'll sell 270 million PCs a year, and Apple will sell 10 million. Apple is fantastically successful ad so are we." It looks like Walt rubbed salt on Ballmer's wounds.
