    Default Canonical Comes Up With Its Own Multi-Touch Framework

    Phoronix: Canonical Comes Up With Its Own Multi-Touch Framework

    For those with multi-touch capable hardware like Dell's XT2 tablet, the Apple Magic TrackPad, or 3M/N-Trig hardware, there's good news if you are an Ubuntu user as Ubuntu 10.10 is set to ship with multi-touch support by default. However, the Ubuntu 10.10 multi-touch support isn't based on the recent port to Linux of the Synaptics Gesture Suite, the Clutter multi-gesture capabilities, or the various other free software efforts in this area, but rather Canonical has come around and come up with their own solution once again. New to Ubuntu today is the Canonical UTouch Framework...

    I know Mark wants to outmac the Mac, but Utouch instead of iTouch?

    Next thing you know we get UTunes, UMacs and UPods xD

    Brilliant :')

    "Hey guys, I got an iBook!!!1 . Geez what's that?"
    -"UMac"
    "No I got mine right here :/"
    -"Yeah... that's not UMac."
    "It is my Mac!"
    -"Yes that's an iMac, but I've got UMac"
    "What do you mean 'I've got your Mac?!'"
    -"No you don't have my Mac"
    "It... this.... Arg!
    -"Are you mad?"
    "Mutherf-... ! Never mind!"
    -*puts on music*
    "What's that?"
    -"UTunes"
    "My... What? I don't listen to that?!"
    -"Wel technicaly you are"
    "AAAA!!!!!" *rage*

    Wasn't this Mark who was talking about tribalism? This is another nice example of Canonical tribalism.
