    A number of reasons. The fact they're not as reliable is one. But then there's the fact that touch typing requires the ability to feel the keys as much as it does knowing the layout.

    They use power.

    Not everything works well with touch screen keyboard. Plus, it would take a long time to programs to be able to use touch screens. For example gaming for a decent amount don't work well.

    That would mean they have a touch screen, and very few "computer users" do.

    Nothing beats the tactile feel of mechanical keys snapping under your fingers. If given the choice between real and virtual, I go real. I'm old. Maybe that's why.

    A virtual keyboard (by which I assume you are referring to on-screen keyboards you operate with a touchscreen or mouse) are way slower to use and waste screen real estate.

    What advantage would they give? Nobody will switch unless there is a distinct advantage and the cost is low.

    We don't want to.  We spent a lot of time learning to use a standard keyboard, and now you want us to switch to something new? Nope, not gonna happen.
