Yuck, well that sucks that the implementation is such crap. MS on the other hand has Project Austin which seems like it would work perfectly with a stylus but suck with your fingers. (That sounded dirty. NO HOMO!) I'm excited about the promise of Project Austin but it sucks that it doesn;t have more of the Courier functionality ... of course it is just a test project at this point, if it's popular I expect them to make it much more robust. Of course, MS could totally screw it up, like they so often do.
