Re: The Windows 8 thread.
I want all input options possible. Right now I use mouse, keyboard, and voice (Dragon 11.5 is terrific). But I would love to have touch as well. I must be close to the monitor because of my vision. But even when I did not have to be so close, I always wanted the option to do so for any number of programs. So from MS's perspective, why not build a unified OS that can do touch as well as the more traditional input sources and that can be used across a variety of platforms. Makes sense to me. And MS has had to deal with backward compatibility for all these years, so they will need to make sure to make Win8 easy for non-touch users. I'm not sure the beta is there yet. Maybe that's why its a beta.
