Windows I personally doubted that Windows 7 would make an actual appearance during the Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer joint interview up on stage at the D6 conference, but as it turns out, it has made an appearance. During an interview conducted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher about Ballmer and Gates' past, present, and future, a short demo was given of Windows 7.

You gotta use more imagination.

Think white boards, schools, presentations, schedule displays, outage boards, etc.

With multi-touch, multiple students can be writing on the board at the same time (happens all the time in the classroom).

If you haven't used a SmartBoard to train, to get training, or for presentations, then you won't get this. In addition to those uses, I've used SmartBoards to trace/ highlight schematics/ drawings with teams. I saw a Smartboard in a training class in 2001. I loved them enough to convince my boss to get me one to conduct training. My wife, an elementary teacher, loved them immediately too as did her coworkers when I showed them mine. Now they are cropping up in university/ college classrooms as well as better-off primary/ secondary schools.

Instead of being a 3rd party app, it is now part of the platform allowing a broader range of applications to benefit.

More practically - I wouldn't replace my home monitors any time soon.
