    Once again Bill, you've completely missed the point of the post and immediately taken it to mean I'm attacking Windows 8. You've really become obsessed with anything that I post. I notice that you don't even comment on negative posts made by others.

    I don't know Ray, I think you've got a complex, I never mentioned Windows 8, you asked about touch and I posted an article about touch.

    Okay now I'll give you my opinion based on what Intel had to say. I believe touch is going to be very pervasive for the near future, there will also be voice commands, I use these occasionally, but I'm not real comfortable talking to a computer or a phone.

    I also think there will be gestures and eye movements, but for the very near future touch is the way to go.

    Bill, I think you need to slow down a tad, you don't even know what you're posting anymore:

    Intel's CES booth...had one basic unmistakable message: touch has arrived. Windows 8 convertibles, detachables, touch-screen laptops, and just plain tablets from Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Samsung, Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Toshiba, Sony, and others blanketed Intel's booth...

    You didn't notice the quotes Ray, that was just an article about touch, I had nothing to do with it, that was Intel

    That was probably my fault I should use the forums tools to make it plainer to see what has been cut and pasted.

    You still brought in a reference to Windows 8. You can twist it any way you want, but consciously or subconsciously, that's what was driving your post. I really am in your head and it reminds me of this:

    Now you're starting to worry me Ray, just take it easy buddy, I've already made a couple of other comments this morning, believe me I'm not following you around.

    Anyway, you told me you wanted to discuss stuff, so I'm discussing, what do you think about what Intel had to say.

    I know that I'm not just starting to worry you, I do worry you. You are obsessed with the bad guy.

    touch is just another option. more options is a good thing.

    that's why I use a trackball instead of a mouse. that's why I use a touchscreen. more choices mean more people have different ways that fit their needs.

    You're not the bad guy Ray, there are plenty of those on here, and with some of those I don't bother to comment, it's like talking to a brick wall. At least I think you basically believe in Windows 8, there are just a few things annoying you and that's fine, that's as it should be.
