Graphics, User Interfaces Yesterday, during the opening hours of the D6 conference, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher jointly interviewed Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates. While the interview dealt mostly with the past, Yahoo, and a bit of Vista, by far the most interesting part was the first ever public appearance of Vista's successor: Windows 7. Earlier today, the team behind D6 posted a video of the demonstration, which was conducted by Microsoft's Julie Larson-Green. From a graphical user interface point of view, there were some interesting things in there.

Touching the screen

I personally hate touching screens or other people touching my screen. Why would I want this, then?

And in the video you can clearly see how the display of the notebook starts wobbling around as soon as she puts her hands on it. I can't believe that this is fun.

On a PDA you're at least using a stylus. And even if you use your fingers, the display is small enough to just wipe it with your hand. But on a desktop/notebook display? No chance.
