    Not yet. When they remember what happened in the '70s when HP came out with touch screen technology, it was rejected because people's arms became tired. The only way the touch screen works is when it's lying flat. then the sliding motions don't tire you out as quickly. Also the amount of training required to switch from earlier versions of Windows do not justify the purchase of 8.
