Trying Out Ubuntu's Netbook Remix

,----[ Quote ]
| In a blog posting this morning by Mark Shuttleworth about Netbook Remix, he
| mentions Canonical is currently working with two other companies to design
| more radical user interfaces for their mobile products. Mark also
| mentioned, "The aim was to do something very simple that could be tested
| easily, work with touch devices and made shippable very quickly. It also
| needed to be efficient on lower-power devices, and work well with Intel
| hardware, which seems to be the preferred platform for this generation of
| devices and allows us to slip a few nice effects in that would be hard
| without the right hardware support."

Add multitouch gesture support to a TouchPad-equipped laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| Multitouch interfaces provide a great deal of benefits for integrating new
| interaction modes within applications. Newer hardware and drivers on Mac OS X
| and Microsoft® Windows® allow for a variety of gestures beyond point and
| click that create more efficient application navigation. This article
| provides tools and code needed to add some of this new gesture support on
| older Linux®-enabled hardware. Building on the output of the synclient
| program, the Perl code presented here allows you to assign specific
| application functions to "Three-Finger Swipe," as well as open- and
| close-pinch gestures.

Multi-touch support for MPX [in Linux]

,----[ Quote ]
| MPX already supported multiple input devices. Which blows pretty much all
| assumptions in user interfaces (input) out of the water. Now I've gone one
| step further and added support for multi-touch displays. Have a look at this
| video...
