re: Windows 8 Doubt: 3 Ways Touch Won't Help

No, Kevin! You're just parroting what the MS marketing shills keep writing in your comments section because you figure you still have take Win 8 seriously.
IGNORE THEM, KEVIN.
Ballmer knows very well how horrible touch is for Word and Excel. How could he not, unless he's never used it at his desk (which may be the case)? The grotesquely unusable metro interface was put in 8 because Ballmer figures that if he forces us to use it on the desktop, we'll buy his overpriced, underperforming tablets and even worse telephones. And metro is still in 8 because the shocked systems designers knew what happens to people who tell him his idea is horrible.
Metro/touch is cynical, insulting, and the last straw in Microsoft's arrogant, backhanded dismissivness of their customers. It's unusable on the enterprise desktop computer, period. You know it. Everyone knows it. Ballmer knows it, and so do his comment shills.
So just say so. Tell the (obvious) truth and stop hedging your bets. Ballmer bet against his customers once too often, and it's time for the industry to tell him "Oooo, snake eyes! GÜÇGÜÇ I'm sorry sir! Now please step back from the table. Next rollah! GÜâGÜé Congratulations, Mister Linux!"
