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.

Try installing Vista on Qemu. I did it once. It required deep hacking at the time. I don't know if that has improved since then but the point stands. If your hardware is not supported by your OS, you will have to hack. You will have to hack on Linux and you will have to hack on Windows. Really, it is just a matter of choosing your components. If you want to run Windows, don't buy an ARM computer. If you want to run Linux, don't buy an Atheros card.
