JavaFX expects to get both Mouse and Touch events when you have a touch screen. However I believe multi-touch events are not delivered as mouse events (somebody on the embedded side correct me if I'm wrong on that). So an app that was designed with mouse events in mind should continue to work when a touch screen is provided.

There's some bit of mess here where some places are explicitly checking iOS etc to hide/show stuff instead of just "embedded". Jonathan do you remember all the places to check?
