Touchpads are getting more popular everyday so I'm not writing them off.

Touchpads are the obvious choice for a mobile computer where you don't want the hassle of an external device like a mouse or keyboard you need to drag around with you.   And the mobile market is going through a huge expansion right now, so it's an obvious target for Windows 8.

The problem is that not every computer is a mobile device, and systems with large screens and a keyboard for bulk text entry are horrible to use with a touch interface.   Windows 8 is trying its best to ignore that market, much to the chagrin of its users.
