X11, Window Managers Peter Hutterer, the man behind the multiple pointer X server, has released an update to MPX server, adding support for multitouch displays. "MPX already supported multiple input devices. Which blows pretty much all assumptions in user interfaces (input) out of the water. Now I've gone one step further and added support for multi-touch displays."

fltk was the first toolkit that came to mind. It hard codes a single static input device.

The most fundamental issue I wonder about what net affect this has on focus policy. I guess it still works well with "focus follows mouse", of course that just means that more than one application can have focus simultaneously for some things.
