It's not an either/or type of thing. It's a great tablet OS and a very good desktop OS. Just because something has been retooled to work better with touch than it did before, doesn't mean it necessarily has detracted from mouse/keyboard use.

It has detracted from keyboard/mouse use because of how often it drags you back into the touch-optimized environment.   It's not a balanced system, it's a system that keeps pushing you to use the touch interface.   That's why people hate it.   If MS would just let desktop users live happily in their desktop environment then Windows 8 wouldn't have gotten the bad rap that it has.
