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.

Where did you get this 99% value? A good 30% of people own an ATI card, and I can guarantee you that ATI cards do not 'just work' in Linux. Intel cards are hit and miss too. Linux also has huge issues with HDMI audio.
