Linux Liuns Torvalds is a finalist for this year's Millenium Technology Prize, prompting Scott Merrill with TechCrunch to do an e-mail interview. Interesting how Torvalds ignores the existence of ultrabooks - the Air is the exact same Intel-designed machine. Curious.

If it's the same problem I'm thinking of, then it's that the trackpad drivers in pre-Win8 windows suck. (And you get the same problem if you run Win7 via BootCamp and don't get it if you run Win8 or OSX on any hardware, Apple or otherwise.)

Of course, I also just read a post on Planet Mozilla yesterday about how OSX apparently has 32ms latency on the cursor and that can be a bigger deal than you'd think.

Take that as you will.
