not even apple uses them. I’d like to sometimes point and click on my linux machine. With my finger. What’s wrong with that, it seems to work well on all the smartphones out there.

    That’s like asking why touchscreen TVs are not mainstream. There is different devices for different purposes. Most people that buy a laptop need the keyboard and use it as a desktop. If a person wants or needs a laptop with touchscreen they either buy the niche models that exist (2-1 laptops) or they use a tablet since that’s the main intended use. Otherwise it will be a waste of resources for a feature most laptop users wont be using enough.
