Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 Requires Multi-Touch Displays & May Run at Glacial Speed on a Netbook

Microsoft announced that:

Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 Now Available

However, before downloading this collection of 7 apps,

Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7

note that these apps are for multi-touch displays:

The Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 is a collection of games and applications that are made available to computers with multi-touch enabled displays running Windows 7.

So, the apps probably won’t run as expected on a simple touch (non-multi) device like the Asus Eee PC T91. The pack was included with my multi-touch capable Eee PC T91MT (note the “MT” suffix). However, the netbook’s Atom Z520 (or a combination of it and 1GB RAM) proved unable to run the touch apps with sufficient speed. The apps ran at glacial speeds on my netbook.
