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.

If you want to run Linux, don't buy an Atheros card.


Why is that? Madwifi just worked back in the day and ath5k finally works just as well for me since kernel 2.6.31-32.
