Multitouch for Windows: kneejerk reaction?

09Oct08
Windows 7 Multitouch

Windows 7 Multitouch; very comfortable as you see. Especially with a heavy watch.

Microsoft announced that in Windows 7 it will have multitouch capabilities and that that would be the way forward and the next big thing. So Apple launched multitouch for the iPhone, great idea and big success.

Multitouch, great for your phone (trying to click with a pen on an HTC Windows Mobile drives me nuts) or for a touch screen kiosk or a tablet PC.

But how do they imagine you sitting in fron of your computer? In the very comfortable pose of having your arms raised manipulating things on the screen? Don´t think so. Let´s keep ergonomics in proportion and focus first on a comfortable pose to work and then on how the interaction ergonomics will work.
