I saw an article yesterday quoting Bill Gates as saying the new Microsoft operating system, the one to replace Vista, should be out in beta form next year. AND that this new operating system would incorporate, or perhaps would begin to incorporate, the new touch screens coming to computing. Bring it on. :-)
My dream is to be able to compute as though my screen were a tilted desk or even a walk into (roll into?) realm were I can reach out and do as I need to (or talk and grunt my way through the OS); without all these restrictions we currently live with. Can you imagine the freedom?
There is a youtube video of the two guys who brought this technology to fruition, that hints at the possibilities. I'll have to search for the link, meanwhile this link is not a bad example.
