Windows 7 PCs with multitouch screens now have a new series of apps focused on play.

Microsoft released on Wednesday its Windows 7 Touch Pack as a free download for any Windows 7 user with a multitouch-capable monitor

The Touch Pack offers three games and three Microsoft Surface apps, all designed to show off the experience of moving, pinching, and twirling your fingers on a touch screen.

The Windows 7 Touch Pack isn't new. It was first announced almost a year ago, but it was previously available only to computers makers that opted to install it on new Windows 7 computers, such as Sony's Vaio L or Hewlett-Packard's TouchSmart 600 all-in-ones.

But now anyone with a multi-touch monitor who upgraded to Windows 7 can play with the pack.
