I see a lot of folk at the stores poking the screens and expecting something to happen. My bet is there are going to be a lot more LCD failures as a result of folk poking the non-touch screens!
Does Windows 8 need a touch screen? From my point of view, Yes. The ability to touch on Windows 8 is what makes the new OS come to life. That is why Metro was invented, all because of touch. Of cause, user can still use mouse and keyboard, but all of them are old-fashioned, not really Windows 8 style. I saw a software on CNET called Gesture2Launch which can bring more gestures to Windows 8, which is a good try. I hope to see more apps with touch behavior on Windows 8...
what do you think?
