It might be good to focus on one platform, but I don't think it should be a touchpad.  Self would have to change a LOT to be useable without a mouse.  See http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010/07/ballmer-and-microsoft-still-doesnt-get-the-ipad.ars for some examples of how an environment has to be designed for touch interaction.  This is something Apple's been able to (and had to) put a bazillion person-hours into for the iPad OS.
