Wastingtime - have you used Windows 8? The UI is different, yes, but it is fantastic on a touchscreen and still works on a non-touchscreen with the mouse gestures.
Put on your "regular user" hat for a few minutes and you'll see how perfect Windows 8 is. My wife is still draining the battery daily on her Vivo Tab. I have heard zero complaints from her.
Touch is the future. Accept it and embrace it.
