    Swype works with touch on my Slate. I am using W7. I was hoping the new graphic drivers would installed, but they would not.

    Rick,
    You are absolutely correct and I apologize if I offended you.

    I was able to get Swype Keyboard to work with touch when I switched back to Windows 7.

    Does the driver just add swipe function to the standard W7 keyboard or is it an entirely different keyboard?

    It is an option. ....but,IMO, certainly not as good as the HVK modified by vtgant!

    <<...certainly not as good as...>>

    ...I agree. I've not found Swype to offer any consistent improvement over simple typing on a sensibly laid out VKB...

    But it replaces the floating keyboard ... no? It can be used in conjunction with the HVK? I think I'll give it a try. I'm not much of a swiper though.

    No , it does not replace the floating KB....it just becomes another optional KB...
    HVK can still be used. I now have 3 keyboards to choose from. I pick the modified HVK.....!

    I confirm that it doesn't work with W8DP, it's really a pity, i've been using swype on my mobile phone for one year and, once you get used to it, is quicker that standard keyboards.
