Be careful what you read about such things - there's a huge difference
between the things individual Gnome developers talk about, and what
Gnome as a whole is actually doing. Practically from day one, people
talked about G3 as a touch-oriented interface, even though it's actually
awful on small devices, and works best on a desktop with a big monitor.
That said, there's a significant range of hardware coming out these days
to support Windows 8, including both laptop and desktop machines with
touch screens. It *is* something that the open desktops need to keep in
mind these days...
