Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

Windows 7 is very poor for TOUCH - so if you use the newer devices like touch screens / convertible type laptops and / or surface Pro 2 / surface pro3 then W7 doesn't make sense.

I find also displaying VIDEO via WI-FI to a remote device such as the office / conference room smart TV / projector also a great help -- less cables etc - especially when several people want also to display stuff at the same meeting --unplugging / re-plugging HDMI / VGA cables etc --"Dinosaur Technology" !!.

W7 also not good at that either.

In Tablet Mode I find touch far more useful than I would ever have thought initially - especially when giving demos / presentations in busy corporate meetings etc.

Obviously touch on a single huge external expensive LCD / Plasma monitor is NOT good or practicable unless your arms are at least 2.0 m long but there are a lot of cases now where I find touch quite an advantage.

Retro fitting decent Touch to W7 or Wi-Fi Video probably isn't in Ms's future plans.

W7 is still fine for people using older classic devices - but for newer technology you really need to change to a more modern OS.

I always thought windows 7 worked well for touch. It was designed for that after all. That is why the taskbar buttons are big by default, and why jump lists were created. If you swipe up on an app in the taskbar, it loads the jump list.
