So?  What if I want to install software at least once or twice a week,  
do I have to have a stylus around all the time?

Bah, this is really terrible thinking.  Whats wrong with making a  
purely finger-friendly interface, besides laziness?

Its not the 90's, stylus-based computing is not cool.  The rest of the  
world is going multi-touch, no accessories required.  We ought to at  
least keep up.
