Usage Notes

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/touch-mouse#windows-8

Originally designed for Windows 7, the Touch Mouse software has been upgraded to provide support for Windows 8 gesture semantics (task switching, Charms menu, context menu, and zoom).  The availability of these gestures improves the usability of the Windows 8 interface for traditional keyboard/mouse users.

The MS Touch Mouse is compatible with any system that has USB ports, and offers a high-precision pointer that works on almost any surface (even glass!).  However, the mouse lacks the advanced ergonomics of some competing models, and may be uncomfortable for extended usage, especially for people with larger hands.
