Using my Tablet for writing

I am doing a lot of writing at the moment. Getting my book finished and articles and papers along with blogging and get my website updated. I have adopted a new way of working with my Tablet PC. I have the screen swiveled around and an external keyboard plugged into the USB port. But I am not using a mouse. I use the pen instead. I am finding this much faster and less stress on the wrist, I used to get bad aches from prolonged usage of the mouse.

I wonder if we will see the demise of the mouse if digitizer screens get cheaper and become more avaiable? I know a lot of new users still have trouble coordinating the mouse. I would have thought pointing at the screen with a pen is far more intuitive.
