Nope!

There is a really good reason why the desktop has stayed the same since the 1990 or so, possibly earlier, and that's because it works and it makes sense! Most people in the business environment do not care about touchscreen as it removes them further from the keyboard where most input is still done. Businesses tend to like it this way and will be reluctant to change!

I can however see environments where touchscreen is great, interactive kiosks for example, early learning environments, information booths to name 3 off the top of my head, just not in the typical office.
