hmmmmmmmm - debatable i think.

Games/gamers will not use touch screens, and the only thing i can think that might replace a gaming mouse would be the NIA. And thats pushing it as well.

The mouse is here to stay as long as you have a gaming community on the pc. I agree with this.

Do these people even know of the existence of gamers? Proper gamers - not these console lackeys.

I've never seen a touch screen with 7 buttons and a scrollwheel tbh. Or one that would be any use for CAD.
