Microsoft, we want ink!

Rob Bushway, from GottabeMobile, has published a master piece. In a few paragraphs Rob has put in white and black what any tableteer or Origami owner would like to see in VISTA. Unfortunately one more time Microsoft is missing the great opportunity of adding in the OS full support for ink.
Now, why does this bother me so much? Vista is going to be here to stay for quite a while. The experience we have with Vista right now is going to be with us for at least another 4 – 5 years. Barring a major service pack or feature release that addresses these issues, it is going to be 8 – 9 years after the Tablet PC launched before we can expect to see another significant opportunity for Microsoft to get this one right. It is a missed opportunity at a very important point in the life of the Tablet PC.
Rob, I'm 300% with you in this one. Microsoft, we want ink!
