if these app developers support touch in windows 8, then i'd rather have access to all the legacy desktop software that a windows tablet brings.

A legacy Intel tablet - which won't be getting anywhere near the battery life and thinness of ARM tablets for the next couple of years.

WOA gives you - well, *might* give you - the same apps on iOS...and, Office.  And you get Metro!

Uh...yeah.  2012 is all Apple again in the tablet market.
