iPhone-like Touch Feature on Windows 7 ?

Microsoft’s next operating system, Windows 7 might support the multi-touch interface, just like the one in iPhone. This rumor comes straight from a Microsoft employee, Hilton Locke, who is working as a test engineer in Windows Shell Team. He didn’t reveal much about the upcoming "touch" features of Windows 7, but he said:
"All I will say that if you are impressed by the ‘touch features’ in the iPhone, you’ll be blown away by what’s coming in Windows 7. Now if only we could convince more OEMs that Windows Touch Technology is going to drive their sales."
Touch based input is nothing new to Microsoft. We’ve seen it in Tablet PCs and Windows Mobile Devices, but so far Microsoft’s touch technology revolved around single contact touch designed for a stylus and not finger.

You can’t really say Microsoft’s multi-touch technology in Windows 7 will bring revolutionary changes to computing, but it just implies that if multi-touch tablets are rolled out, Windows 7 will be able to handle them.
