How many touchpoints can Windows 8 max out at vs Windows 7.

I tried to do research w/ no luck.

That's a factor of the hardware, not the software... Any more than 5 really is a waste anyway, unless you have a massive screen (and most tablets are not big enough for that). Certainly, 10 would be the practical max unless the designers are polydactyl!

Yeah. Windows 8 touchscreen machines are *supposed* to support at least 5, but I've seen anywhere from 5-20. Win7 touchscreens are a lot less common and rarely advertised the number of points they supported, but if you run Win7 on the same hardware (and the drivers are available), you should get the same number of points...
