Subject Re: Flex Mobile components in desktop/browser applications

@maxime: true, but we should begin considering that touch interactions is
starting to exist on notebooks and desktop.. AIR and FP supports this since
some major releases (AIR 2 and FP 10 I think), Windows supports touch
screen since version 7, and with version 8 someone is actually selling such
kind of devices.. if I have a touch screen in a notebook, an O.S.
supporting it, a runtime supporting it, why can't I use touch to scroll
through a list just or to zoom an image, like I currently do on mobile
phones and tables?
