Subject Re: Flex Mobile components in desktop/browser applications

Actually, a lot of mobile features could be ported to desktop in the
future, as it seems to me that the differences are going to be less and
less with new desktop operationg systems and devices, e.g. windows 8
tablets and touch enabled laptops.

For example, the touch-enabled components (e.g. lists) and the DPI-based
scaling feature of some mobile skins could probably be useful on the
lastest touch-enabled laptop as well.. thoughts?
