As of today, CES 2009 is all ASUS' show. We're impressed with both the hardware on display as well as the custom UIs they've developed to take advantage of their new touchscreen displays while waiting for Windows 7 to arrive.

We had high hopes that the Origami Experience 2.0 would be more than just two apps and a new password system, but we were pretty disappointed when we spent some time playing with it at Microsoft's booth.

We're not really sure you can call a new home screen and app launcher an "experience," but considering the point of a UMPC is to run bog-standard Windows, we suppose Microsoft has to take what it can get.
