    Fine. you win, although I thought there was a joke I could come up with a touchscreen and barbecue. Also, I have a touchscreen, and it isn't a problem for me.

    Also, is this going to be integrated in both GNOME and KDE within Ubuntu?
    Is this going to soon be an option in all major Distros? Like Debian, Red Hat, Mandriva, OpenSuse, Fedora, etc, etc?
    Will this be more of a standard through KDE/GNOME or the Kernal or is it going to be purely something extra that the distro puts in?

    All I really care about is that I can use my touchpad on my laptop to do things like you can in OSX, because I really like that feature... But this is really cool if it can be well supported, and works... I'm kind of excited.
    It's standard now, if your touchpad can do it at all. My Gigabyte netbook has two-finger scroll, three-finger click. two-finger click, and one-finger click, and I didn't have to do a thing.
