Windows One of the big hypes of Windows 7 was the new integrated touch and multitouch features unheard of in previous systems. On paper, it all looks nice, but the folks over at Engadget recently tested out these said features of the beta on an HP TouchSmart PC, and were underwhelmed by the efficiency of the features.

"So is anybody really astonished to see Microsoft once again overpromising / underperforming.

Dude, BETA. B, E, T, A. BETA. Beta. Beta. Beta? Yes, beta! What you say, beta? Oh my god, beta? Yes, BETA! Give me a B, give me an E, give me a T, give me an A, gooooooooooo BETA!!!!!!

Get it?

Doesn't beta imply feature-complete? If Windows 7 is truly a beta then shouldn't the underwhelming experience of its features mean something? If not I guess Windows 7 isn't ready to be called beta and we'll once again be sold an incomplete and buggy OS as release quality.
