Yes.  Tap-clicks are a pretty severe usability issue.  Way too easy to
inadvertently click or even highlight on something by accident and
overwrite it with text, doubly so if your palms brush the surface while
typing.

Who's responsible for changing the tap default yet again?

IIRC, tap-to-click was on by default in F8, then off in F9, then back on in F10, and now it'll be off again in F11. I'm in the pro-tap2click camp -- precisely *because* it is so effortless to use VS button clicking, if you've got any dexterity at all -- but why the flip-flopping? And if there was a vote, I wonder what the consensus might be.
