EngadgetHD had the best Windows 7 Media Center scoop from CES. They shot a great video of the Media Center 7 used with a touchscreen UI. While I’m not sure I would want my family reaching out and touching my LCD or plasma TV to change the channel, there’s no denying the fact that this has the cool factor. And the interface isn’t too shabby even without the touchscreen control.
SageMC offers a touchscreen interface that I have yet to try. I’d probably use touchscreen on a kitchen or secondary display, but not on my livingroom, bedroom or theater display. What do you think: Is an HTPC touchscreen worthwhile?
