I don't think either way is better, it's just a question of what you're used to. But then I'm the kind of person who uses a touchpad on my laptop and a mouse with my desktop interchangeably without being bothered by the difference, so maybe some people are more sensitive about it.
You could be onto something here. But bottom line is its personal preference. And some prefere to touch some prefere to push and some prefere the use of a stylus. As was pointed out by some one in another thread... a stylus can be useful with a touch screen if you have problems with your hands to some degree.
