Unity is /not/ a touchscreen interface. Go play with an Android phone
or an iPad or a Windows 7 device and you will see that touchscreen
interfaces are totally different beasts.

Unity is basically a ripoff, I mean, lovingly inspired by the Apple
Mac OS X desktop and Dock, and as someone who has been using that
regularly for a decade now, I can assure you that it is a competent,
powerful and flexible *DESKTOP* interface for machines with a mouse
and a keyboard.
