Microsoft prepping Windows 7 touch-centric shell for slates?

Posted on Friday, October 08 2010 @ 05:04:22 CEST by

ZD Net's Mary Jo Foley reports rumors indicate Microsoft may be working on a touch-centric Windows 7 shell for tablets, and guesstimates it could be based on Windows Media Center:
I’ve heard recurring rumors that Microsoft might develop its own optional “shell” for slate makers that would make Windows 7 touch-centric than touch-additive. By providing such an interface, Microsoft would avoid the lack of a consistent and standardized interface that have plagued Android and Windows Mobile developers and users.

But now I’m wondering whether Microsoft is simply going to encourage its OEM partners to use the Windows Media Center interface, or at least elements of it, to create more touch-friendly Windows slate interfaces.
