>>> And yet Apple has sold 300,000,000 iPhones and 80,000,000 iPads that didn't have a common interface with their, or any other desktop interface, and I am still waiting to hear someone say "Oh, but it should work just like my computer at home." <<<

For me it's the other way around. My wife and I both occasionally reach up to the laptop display to pinch/ zoom images or even text. The more I think about it, the more the idea of a touch screen on my MacBook appeals. I can even see it being handy on occasion for the desktop... though I'm not entirely sold on that, arm fatigue would get to be an issue after prolonged use.
