@Jimmy: These are a series of demos that I developed along with existing software.
The launcher is a simple Surface application developped with the Surface SDK for Windows. It uses a Scatter View control. I used an xml file to list the applications that the launcher can start. the app parses the xml file, adds tiles with the right screenshot capture (pre-backed) and stores commands that will be called when tiles are pressed in order to launche the applications.
To make an application the shell of your embedded system, you can use the Embedded Enabling feature called Custom Shell (www.microsoft.com/.../Standard-7-Custom-Shell.aspx).
The advanced touch apps are in the WIndows 7 touch pack you can find here:www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx
