I probably know less about it than you do, but a couple of months ago I
attended a .NET presentation put on by Microsoft, and of course one of
the "kewl innovations" the presenter talked about was Ink. So of course
somebody (me) had to ask if it actually worked. Well, it worked when the
presenter was writing, but not when he asked for a volunteer from the
audience. Make of that what you will.
