Hardware, Embedded Systems "I was prepared to write that the Windows 8 interface was forcing unnecessary touchscreen controls on people who wouldn't appreciate them, particularly if they were simply grafted onto a traditional laptop. But the more I've used Windows 8, despite its faults, the more I've become convinced that touchscreens are the future - even vertical ones." I can see his point. I, too, have often felt the desire to touch regular and laptop displays, especially when doing things like photo and video.

"when I can just swipe down from the top of the screen to close a Windows 8 program?

Ohh, so that's how you do it! I was wondering what the "proper" way of doing that was. That's totally undiscoverable, though, and quite clearly says something about the interface..

I never close applications at all in Windows 8. I just go back to Metro.
