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.

As someone who uses VST (virtual instrument) apps with lots of knobs and sliders that are a ROYAL pain in the ass to use with a mouse, I welcome touch screens on the desktop. Sure, I realize it's a niche use, but if Windows 8 helps touch screens rise in popularity, I'm not going to complain ;)
