    Multi-Touch-Screen on Thin Clients - Gimmick or the Future...?

    I had a play with a multi-touch screen on a thin client - and at the moment I remain to be convinced, it's certainly not as smooth or intuitive as "Apple", and a large screen is not as easy to manipulate as a phone/tablet, but it does work - and with the right applications might be impressive....

    It seems a little immature at the moment - all the involved parties don't seem to be gelling together - for example on W2012, to get into the "charm box/area" you have to pull the cursor beyond the edge of lower left corner - not easy on a touch-screen with your finger ! You can press "Window key + C" - but shouldn't touch screens be more intuitive - not less so....

    Anyway I suppose all current generation of thin-clients support multi-touch, so whether to use or not is not a decision anyone needs to stick their neck out over...
