Well it looks like this download might be available soon for those of you with touch enabled PC’s. So what is the Windows 7 Touch Pack?
The Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 is a collection of games and programs that you interact with using your fingers. To use these games and programs, you need either a laptop with a screen that supports multitouch or a desktop PC connected to a touchscreen that supports multitouch (including all-in-one PCs with touchscreens).
According to this description page here is what you will find in the package when it becomes available for download:
Microsoft Blackboard, an intricate game of physics in which you solve a puzzle by creating a fanciful machine on a blackboard. For more information, see Touch Pack: How to play Microsoft Blackboard.
Microsoft Garden Pond, a tranquil game that takes place in serene Japanese water gardens. For more information, see Touch Pack: How to play Microsoft Garden Pond.
