Windows One tiny thing I wanted to mention about Windows 8: ever noticed how context menus in Metro appear above the mouse cursor instead of underneath? I'm assuming this is done because of finger input (by opening above, your finger and hand doesn't cover the menu), but with a mouse, it's just plain weird. Fun little detail though - shows you how much thought has gone into the touch aspect of Windows 8.

I'd like to see you using a mouse and touchscreen simultaneously.

Anyway, you're completely arguing beside the point. Workstations and tablets are different things with their own advantages and disadvantages. They work in completely different ways. Forcing the style of one on the other inherently ignores that. Everything else you say is just pointless as it is completely different discussion. Keep it for another day.
