And the winner?

Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7, should be the first application, any touch screen monitor owner should download as it is completely free. Applications from Corel are also worth checking out.

Sadly, selection of good touch screen software is still quite poor. BumpTop is no longer available for download and Asus is making their software only bundled with their computers (read the Touch Gate software review). With the exception of a few giants, like Microsoft and Corel, no major companies seem to be interested in developing touch enabled software for the PC…
