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.

... It's definitely possible. OSNews had a story about how to do this (http://www.osnews.com/story/19960/)

So, it should be reimplemented as open source, and then it can be included by default, unless there are patents ;)

Isn't those gestures patented?
