Yes, thanks, David, for seconding that. There is definitely no need for Touch. Granted Touch is what it is & can do certain things but, there is no loss on non-Touch. BTW, a finger pad on a laptop can be used like touching the screen on a non-Touch screen laptop. Swiping the touchpad will be as if swiping the screen. But, I digress. And, yes, as STG mentioned there's the Windows 8 K/M that does touch actions... that might be kinda cool... I honestly can't feel like sitting @ a desk & reaching to touch the monitor, while I type or mess w/ papers or whatever. So, on a desktop would use a Touch screen but, that Keyboard-Mouse would be best of everything. But, still, it's great w/ regular mouse/keyboard & non-Touch screen, too
Never mind the license bit. Thinking bout too many things, people & posts @ once. Something was said about giving up a license and I thought of something under discussion yesterday so never mind that one.
I've run Win8 for 8 months on a non-Touch
, desktop PC & it's a joy to navigate!! Fast, quick, easy & convenient. Everything direct, handy & few clicks. By the way, 'STG', what you wrote was very sound & very well said. My compliments, some good points nicely expressed.
