    I have a Toshiba Portege M700 and use Cooliris too - flicking through the stream of photos with your fingers seems to work well!

    If you want some software specifically for tablet pcs you can find a useful list here

    Of the free software, I particularly like Artrage Starter Edition- it works well with a stylus

    http://www.ambientdesign.com/artragedown.html

    Also, Inkseine is interesting

    if you are a blogger, Windows Live Writer using the Ink Blog plugin is very neat

    If you have Vista then you are probably using the snipping tool but I like a free app called PrtScr - not optimized for a tablet but it works well

    Don't overlook windows journal as a note taking tool - but evernote is pretty nice

    http://evernote.com/

    you can download a desktop app that lets you ink notes - you can store web clips online and sync your notes - what's more you can search your ink notes - worth exploring

    As for paid for software, the best note taking tool is Microsoft's Onenote and an affordable pdf editor is PDF Annotator with full inking support.

    For launching apps, try Circle Dock

    http://circledock.wikidot.com/

    although I prefer True launch Bar (truelaunchbar.com)

    a free version is available

    Corel Painter is awesome. You can pick paint colours, mix them together on-screen to make your own colours, choose different brush types etc. It's pressure sensitive so the harder you push the deeper and darker come out the paint colours. Its as close you can get to actually painting without all the messy stuff!

    You might also want to check out. Microsoft OneNote.

    The contact demonstrate is punctiliously diverse software and at this level it isn't achieveable to rework the conventional demonstrate screen/demonstrate to the contact one. Wait and watch is the in elementary words fee-useful answer.
