You are not quite right. I use an all in one computer with a touch
screen with Trinity. It's quite good, because all of the screen elements
(icons, control panel, window frames) could be enlarged enormous, so the
can be used with fingers.
As screen keyboard I use xkeyboard which integrates also very well. Most
problems make websites which work with a fixed size layout. Ok, it is
not a real workstation for day by day work.

Just my 2 ct.
