> No. But having desktop that is also usable on a touch screen is a important priority for them. This is something that Linux distributions, in general, never had in the past. There existed lots of software and environments that were intended to make writing and using touch screen oriented software easier, but nothing in general to make Linux desktop usable using anything other then a keyboard and pointer device.
I'm curious to why this is important?
By making a desktop environment that works well with touch-screens, they created one that works horrible with a mouse and keyboard. I don't know many desktops with touchscreens, except for kiosks and the like. The last thing I want to do is to mess up my monitor with fingerprints.
