Thanks to Craig Pringle, searching in Vista is about to become ink-enabled. Here is a blurb from Craig’s post. I’ve signed up for the beta program and we’ll plan on doing an InkShow on it soon as well.
When you click ““Start SearchÃ¢â‚¬Â it will bring up the Start Menu and enter the ink recognition result into the Search field. Vista does the rest.
You can also right-click the icon and select exit if you want to get rid of it, but why would you want to do that?
