If you want to live a mouseless life, you'll need a Windows 7 touchscreen PC. But once that's done you can use your fingers to surf the Web and flick through photo albums. Windows 7 is the first version of the OS to use multitouch technology, allowing users to zoom in on a map by spreading two fingers apart and right-clicking by touching a file with one finger and tapping the screen with another. Windows Touch is available in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate editions.
