M$ advised IBM that if they continued to battle OS/2 against Windoze, IBM would be cut off from putting M$ on any of their PCs/Laptops.

OS/2 was 4 years ahead of Windoze when 95 came out.

I actually ran OS/2 Warp on an IBM PS/2 Model 60, I also ran DOS Shell for a while.

Every Windows OS upgrade is just a fancier and sometimes faster way to get viruses

My DOS apps in a VDM would run faster than in regular DOS.  I ran OS/2 for years.

But why force what is a touch interface onto desktop machines where most people don't even have touch screens or such?

You don't have to use a touch screen to use Windows 8.

Like I said, it's Microsoft's attempt to provide a consistent look & feel interface across desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.  I think it's a worthy objective.  I admit that not having a consistent look & feel (and not having my office apps) is one factor that makes me hesitate when considering obtaining a tablet.
