Windows 7 and Windows XP might not be as touch-friendly as Apple’s iOS, but the Mirabyte FrontFace is a custom user interface that is designed to make those operating systems easier to use on tablet devices. It offers a custom program launcher and icons, allowing you to flip between running applications without pulling up a keyboard or having to press Alt+Tab. The new version includes a widget engine and some other features to make your experience better. A free community preview has been around for a while, but the company eventually hopes to make money out of the whole deal and is currently offering a pre-order deal that prices it at $29.95, with the full version of FrontFace going on sale later this month for $39.95.
