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.

Any vendor willing to port their code to linux is good, whether the product (or the translated product) is good or poor because the more commercial entities porting their wares to linux, the more likely other companies will consider doing the same... sort of a cascading effect.
