    Ubuntu/Linux on Tablet PCs

    The next purchase I am looking to make is that of a tablet PC. Anyone have any first hand experience they are willing to share with running Ubuntu/Linux on tablets? My big question is are there any distros out there that support multi-touch on the screen? Also are there any brands/model I should look at in particular or more importantly that I should stay away from?

    Any suggestions/input is welcome. I am just starting to look this evening but plan to spend lots of time googling around the next couple weeks to try and find the best system out there tablet wise.

    Thanks,
    ~Jeff

    Hi beastrace91,

    No multi-touch support yet. The MPX project hasn't been integrated into Xorg's Xserver yet. Some talk that it might happen by Kharmic (9.10). N-trig doesn't yet have a linux driver or project out. Some folks have done patches on the linuxwacom drivers to enable it to work.

    I have a TX2000 with a usb Wacom digitizer and touchscreen that's been working well since Hardy.
