Ditto.  Every time I use my Newton -- and that's a lot of times each day --
I get this little frisson of pleasure and amazement.  I love to have a pen
or brush in my hand, my thoughts just flow more easily, and a stylus is only
a minor variation from that. I suppose it's the calligrapher in me
recognizing the modality or something.

If I've learned anything consistent about technology, data input and
Newtonians, it's that Sly Stone was absolutely right:
"Different strokes, for different folks,
 and so on and so on, and dooby-dooby-doo-doo".

And for me one of the coolest things about NewtonTalk is that we all tend to
respect that about one another.
