I think Ubuntu GNOME is the best flavor of Ubuntu if you are running in HiDPI mode 3200x1200. All screen captured images are at HiDPI resolution.

Ubuntu 16.04 is not released yet, the screen shoots are from a daily build, 16.04 it is scheduled to be released in Q2 2016.

Chrome browser supports touch screen very well and much better than Firefox without any plug-ins.
The windows key on the screen panel works as the windows key on the keyboard.
