    Exclamation iTablet running Ubuntu???

    I found an article that claims it's possible, but I'm new to Ubuntu (and linux) so I have no idea if this is just speculation or not:

    However I am in the market for a travel computer, and if this is true I may be willing to wait on my netbook purchase...

    Why would you ever want to? Gnome has no tablet support.

    I've been running Ubuntu on an HP tablet for a year now. Handwriting recognition is better than what I had on Vista. Screen rotation, the whole nine yards. Wouldn't trade it for an iTablet if you paid me.

    ...They're basing this on someone's mockup of a tablet? They do know Apple hasn't confirmed the tablet's existence yet, much less released photos, right?
    Posting code? Use the [code] or [php] tags.
    I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me.

    You and your pathetic little facts don't stop people from writing about how ChromeOS is better than linux due to KDE/Gnome infighting.
