But still, many were quick to argue that the PC will never go mouse-less. Which is silly. In fact, it’s going to next year. And Microsoft — yes, Microsoft! — is leading that charge.
Sure, they point out in the video that the Windows 8 interface can still be used with a mouse. But that’s laughable. Watch what they’re doing in those videos. How are you going to do some of those gestures with a mouse? And even the ones you can do, it will be a thousand times harder than if you just use touch gestures. Microsoft admits that Windows 8 is designed for touch.
Microsoft reluctantly admits that people still use keyboards and mice: mobile.theverge.com/2014/1/30/5362…—

The irony in Siegler using MSFT in positive to make a point and that back firing due to MSFT going back is hilarious.
