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.

Touchscreens make sense in some cases and not in others. Keyboard/mouse makes sense in some cases and not in others. There's certainly room for both but if the idea is for touchscreens to replace keyboard/mouse, that would be a mistake of epic proportions.
