    Question does ubuntu 12 or 13 support touchscreen, yet?

    hi,

    so lets say i buy a touchscreen laptop. is there a current release of ubuntu that supports this? i mean a touchscreen laptop that is, like, "pre-touchscreen era" built , you know, the ones they first came out with before they started getting all slim and fresh looking. .

    i know april is getting pretty close now and am looking forward to upgrading.

    also, does anybody know if ubuntu 14 will support mice as well? i see they are going towards touchscreens and i dont have one yet.
    you dont have to answer that one if you dont want to, but, just a thought.

    i moved to ubuntu after a friend reminded me of it, i checked it out and now i dont have all these advertisements blaring in my face when i just want to communicate with someone - _ ^

    plus it already does more than windows does and i just started using it ..


    thanks guys,
