I´ve got a really early look at Reactrix years back. So I wasn´t really impressed with my initial interaction with rudimentary MS Surface setup at the Office 2007 launch. There wasn´t anything new about it, yet Microsoft took the idea further by incorporating it into an OS.

Now there is talk on the net about who was first in getting the patent.

Here are a few articles talking about the recent hype.
