Exactly, the experience should not be the same, that is one of my points; when you plug in a big screen, mouse and keyboard, you should get a desktop experience, not the touch expeirence; trying to combine the two experiences into one UI is the mistake MS made with Windows 8.x;
When in touch mode, you get a touch-optimized UI, when in desktop mode, you get a desktop-optimized UI.
BUT it would be quite handy to not have to carry around multiple devices. Once device to rule them all?
Incidently, take a look at this, maybe not quite there yet, but you can see a glimmer of what the future might look like, people really love this device:
