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.

Remember, we're talking about Linux on the desktop here.

Well, you are. Most people who use Linux don't use it on the desktop and desktop users have Windows if they don't like how Linux works on the Desktop so I don't know why you are whining about it. I'm running it on the desktop but I chose to. Most computer are sold with Windows. In many country it is almost impossible to get a desktop computer without Windows. You can't install Linux by mistake. Windows is not that hard to use anyway these days. The long serials you had to enter are a thing of the past and the license is not that expensive. Get a proper firewall, use your brain when surfing the web and you should be safe from virii. Why don't you just use it on your desktop?
