"Until today, the Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 was only available for OEMs to put on new Windows 7 PCs capable of Windows Touch. Due to feedback and requests from both partners and customers, we are releasing the Microsoft Touch Pack for Windows 7 for anyone with Windows Touch capable devices to download."
Most people who buy pre-packaged computers will not benefit from this but it is nice to see the rest of us get to play with the neat programs Microsoft has developed. I am guessing that they are trying to spur more attention to this side of Windows 7. Basically a "Look here! I am cool and hip too!" kind of statement. It is a nice gesture though, and it might also encourage more developers to work on programs that integrate multitouch.
