Games Valve's Gabe Newall on Linux and Windows 8: "We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It's a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we'll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that's true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality."

Buttons vs. screen-buttons, sure (when it comes to games designed for buttons) ...but then you jump to praising mouse/trackball on such basis? Mouse is quite feedback-less - it feels always the same, all mouse games are built around the simplistic mechanic of pointing at stuff quite disconnected from the input device.
(and phone screens have enough of texture to similarly feel movement, when pointing/dragging, and they have ~force-feedback built in)
