I'm sure if you buy the hardware for a dev, you'll find a dev willing to write driver(s) for it.

I personally am hoping that the Mono project gets ported from Linux to AROS, most specifically the Moon plug-in/viewer.

http://www.mono-project.com/Moonlight

It would be nice to see the codecs ported (it would add great video to AROS), the functionality including the SURFACE demo.

Also, it would to see .Net applications easily ported (as it is right now in *nix)

Here's the surface demo running under the Linux version of Mono right now (using the moon plug-in)..

Problem with Mono port and the other very large projects is we do not have the Devs to do it. I love to see Mono, CUPS and other large projects be ported, but I'm begging to get minor but very need apps like a Disk Validator created.

Stability, some form of memory protection, more robust file systems, basic device drivers(e.g. more network drivers, USB mass storage, scsi?), network file system, hard drive tools, task manager, ACPI/SMP, native build/debug environment are the basic modern day OS stuff on my wish list.

Crash my HD and have to reinstall from scratch as we speak.
:(

BTW, that multitouch is a Microsoft prototype. You won't be ordering it from NewEggs anytime soon. If you have a couple of millions lying around, I'll be quite happy to develope such a system for you.

I figure the RNE is about 5-6 person years worth of work at loaded rate of $100K/engineer (1 electrical, 1 mechanical, 2 software + 2 contractors/technicans), allowing for material cost/tooling and office overheads, that's just be the amount to get you to first proto assuming you don't run into patents issues.

Let me know if you get the paperworks together. There are lots of companies who would love to get that at that low price.

Maybe I lack fantasy, but I can't image a real use of this, except of some demos or games.

OK, a "click" with two fingers could be translated to a right mouse button click.

Even if someone writes a driver which recognices every finger tap, what application can then use this information?

A driver which translates single touch hits into mouse moves is more usefull. This would be good for car navigation.

IMHO

Considering it has been done at least as far back in the 1984, no one really see any commercial values until Apple dug that up and MS show off their case mod coffee table.

The utube case mod generation has more money than sense, so it is a natural thing for them to attract to bright light and manufactured coolness.

I was going to post the following link when this topic first came up, guess there is no business case for this.

http://www.fingerworks.com/
--> FingerWorks has ceased operations as a business.

Time to buy some windex(TM) stocks.

From a quick look, products do not look large enough for the "wow!" factor that sells alot of top end electronics. 48" OTOH mutli-touch with very high end definition would had been a winner, IMO. Idiot management decisions are of course another factor in killing a business off.

Need to buy more Windex stocks again.

LCD screens are too fragile to be touched. Deflections in the glass cause funny colour patterns. Greasy fingers is also going to be a problem.

3D mult-touch is where the money is at. I am sure the adult industry would find some applications.

Not exactly ready for commercial product, but probably fun multi-touch project.
