Aside from the problems others have mentioned, I can't imagine how
having to reach over that overblown touchpad in order to use the
keyboard would be anything except uncomfortably awkward.

Either the touchpad would put my arms in a carpal tunnel aggravating
position, or the keyboard would.

The "continuum" layout is interesting, but doesn't seem to require their
ten-finger touchpad. It doesn't seem that it would be very hard to
implement the same ideas in a keyboard-only windowmanager.
