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 find that hard to believe. If it was that important to a competitor, surely they would reverse engineer the code and take a look inside the appropriate hardware and find out all they need to know.
