Windows 7 Touch Screen Offering Could Benefit End Users

Patrick Avery

With the arrival of Windows 7, PC manufacturers are moving much more aggressively into the realm of software to differentiate themselves, IT Business Edge contributor Michael Vizard writes in his "IT Unmasked" blog. Lenovo is one such company, having recently introduced new ThinkPad notebook systems that include a Simple Tap extension to the touch-screen capability of Windows 7.

 

Vizard says that this type of capability has the ability to link a tab to any specific application on a server. End users can then simply touch a tab on the Windows 7 desktop to invoke that application.

 

"The best part of that is that any updates to the application on the server are all transparent to the end user. That may not seem like a huge technical advance, but it's a good example of a simple little thing that makes a big difference in the minds of both end users and the IT administrators that serve them."
