Windows 7 does support Touch.
Dell does appear to have Windows 7 drivers for the XPS 13 available for download on their website, so it should be possible to do load Windows 7 on that machine.

Until I got used to Win8 on my Dell touch screen laptop, i used the "Classic Shell" utility:

So, you might want to try that before giving up on Windows 8.

Windows 7 does not always support touch and not likely to work here.

I am using Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. 8.1 allows me to start directly in the desktop and I use native Windows 8 tools to find all applications on the desktop and never use Metro.  You cannot tell my machine from Windows 7 except that it is faster and has a much better display.

Best thing for you: Stay with Windows 8.1, keep the touch and set it up to ignore Metro. Live is good and you get what you want.
