I use a lot of touch-screen equipment at work, and greasy fingers 
is the least of the problems.  The main things that would keep me 
away from touch is their tendency to drift (the older they get the 
faster they go out of alignment - we have some NEC 20" displays 
that need realignment almost every day) and the fact that the touch 
film is extremely glossy.  Contrary to popular belief, LCD displays 
also suffer from burn-in (in some cases worse than CRTs) and that 
can be much more distracting than fingerprints.
