I happened to be in PC World yesterday and walked past a display of HP TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PCs, one of which was being prodded enthusiastically by two teenage girls.

.... I've spent the last nine years (that was when I bought my first TFT) being obsessive about don't-poke-the-screen-because-that-is-bad. Combine that with the fact that there is nothing I hate more than someone poking greasy fingers on my monitor and touchscreens seem worse than pointless - they seem like a personal nightmare.
I am left with the impression that it's less a tech 'advance' and more a company saying "We think it's cool. So we're gonna do it, and you're going to buy it."

Still, if someone offered me one of those 82" touch-screen jobs for free, I'd find somewhere to put it.

I should probably make a sticky out of this and put something on TuxRadar. As you might have guessed, we've been running low!
