I guess that since you don't suffer from wet or moist hands, you can't really talk from experience.
This is not just my opinion, it's a fact. It's physics, friction laws or whatever. How many people have to agree with it for you to see you are wrong? Feel like testing? Go put soap on your fingers then try lifting a glossy object (like a glass or something). See what happens! (spoiler: please don't call me names after you drop and break the glass).

That was exactly what i was trying to point out, before this sweaty-dry hands discussion. It only makes sense if you plan to release a glossy version (for ppl who find this better), then atleast make the whole thing glossy, not just some parts.Edited by kaingosu - 11/12/11 at 1:39pm
