Linux We all know Synaptics, the company that seems to produce just about every touchpad you can get your hands fingers on. Their touchpads also do a lot of multitouch and gesture stuff, but up until now, their set of gestures, the Synaptics Gesture Suite, was only available on Windows. Luckily, they've ported it over to Linux, and made it available for OEMs building Linux laptops.

I've certainly had two finger scrolling on my eeepc since I got it in '08.

Pinch to zoom might be nice though. Presumably apps like eye of gnome will also need to add multitouch support?
