Depends on the device.  Tablets and phone, yes.  Phone gets the mobile version due to screen size, tablets (Windows desktop and Android) gets the desktop version.  Laptop uses a trackpad, so classify that as you will. 

 

On my desktop PC, hell no. Anybody puts their grubby fingers on my monitors will have them broken.  A little weird about that.

:blink: Huh?

I guess I always browse Neowin with my finger. On my laptop that finger is using the touchpad, on a workstation the finger is using the mouse, and on my phone my finger is using the screen...

Let me put it like this, I don't browse Neowin with my feet.

Fail on the poll, you should be able to select multiple options (aka NOT radio buttons).

 

My answers: Almost never, desktop, tablet, smartphone, Surface Pro (tablet/laptop with keyboard), and half/half
