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.

Am I alone in the world? I don't want dirty fingerprints on my screen.

That's no surprise. I think the point is that I don't need to read the screen through a dirty keyboard; finger marks all over the screen make it more difficult to read.
