    Hi, I'm curious to know if a touch screen on a windows 8 PC will work with OSX or not if it is in vitural box?

    Yes, the touch screen will work IF it is in a virtual box, but remember that OS X is not optimized for touch.

    So the gestures will work I suppose (3 finger drag, 4 figure exposé)?

    The connected hardware/software sequence is [TouchScreen -- Mac OS X -- VM software -- Windows]. I think unless the TouchScreen has OS X drivers, it won't be usable as a touchscreen in Mac OS X or the VM.

    Would be great to know if it works though!
