We usually stick to hardware here at SlashGear, but Microsoft's announcement that it will be including MultiTouch in the upcoming Windows 7 OS is interesting enough to bend the rules. Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer sat down with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at D to discuss the new inclusion, with a demonstration of MultiTouch working on a somewhat modified Dell Latitude XT Tablet PC. Apparently much of the work that the Surface team has been doing is rolled into Windows 7, which will see a release in late 2009.
