Microsoft touts Windows 7 Touch Pack

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Microsoft has debuted its Windows 7 Touch Pack for the eager PC masses. 

The pack was first introduced last May as a series of 6 applications designed to showcase Windows 7 Touch and help people learn corresponding gestures.

It includes three casual games, as well as three Microsoft Surface applications created specifically for the latest iteration of the OS.

Microsoft touts Windows 7 Touch Pack "Until today, the Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 was only available for OEMs to put on new Windows 7 PCs capable of Windows Touch," explained Microsoft spokesperson Brandon LeBlanc.

"[However], due to feedback and requests from both partners and customers, we are releasing the Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 for anyone with Windows Touch capable devices to download.

"[So], if you have a Windows 7 PC or a multitouch monitor that supports Windows Touch in Windows 7, the Touch Pack for Windows 7 is a good way for you to be able to truly test the multitouch investments we've made."
