Having used Windows 8 since the consumer preview release I'm pretty happy that it's been designed with mouse and keyboard controls in mind. I've yet to find anything I can't do on Windows 8 that I could on Windows 7. And I've not felt at any point that I'm missing out on anything by not using it on a touch-enabled device.

If the functionality has taken such a back seat as you seem to be making out how would MS removing the need to click a single tile, or (if you have put it as the first tile) pressing enter, when first logging in fix those issues? What functionality is it restoring?
