The presence of a stylus does require a resistive screen, which is less responsive to touch than capacitive. For the vast majority of people that would like to have a ui that does not require the use of a stylus, this is not a good trade off.

In the ideal world you would have a multi-touch screen that work well with a stylus. Indeed there is a trade off, but it is a good trade off for many people, including myself. Resistive touch screen has many advantages over capacitive, especially in mobile computing.

I can't disagree more. Obviously, part of it is personal preference. But its like you're recommending a Mc Donald's hamburger patty over a dry aged kobe rib-eye.
