I haven't tried it myself, but would it be fair to call Windows 8 primarily a touch screen GUI that can accomodate a mouse and keyboard, rather than a desktop GUI that can handle touch?

I think so, honestly. I have a hard time seeing how that will integrate into the workplace well without some major equipment purchases (not going to happen) or revisions of the OS. -
I think eventually they're going to have to bifurcate the OS. But we'll see if people think Windows RT is good enough, and if the low end Surface does well. -
Yeah, I'm not sure how they'll handle it yet. I think on the consumer end, they're going the direction that things seem to be headed, and it is a smart move. Some of that is hitting enterprise, but there are good reasons for most information workers to have a standard setup, and this makes their navigation a little odd. -
Wait, why do I need "apps" on a desktop?? -
Yes. Win8 is definitely a touch screen GUI that accommodates mouse and keyboard. From the first moment I started poking at it that's what my reaction was: "This is like using a smartphone GUI..." -
