X11, Window Managers Peter Hutterer, the man behind the multiple pointer X server, has released an update to MPX server, adding support for multitouch displays. "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."

Thanks go google and SoC, a student is working on integrating gnome's metacity window manager with MPX.

This will be interesting to play with once it is merged into x.

Update:
For ubuntu users who want to play with mpx, take a look here for a repo that contains it for you:
