Multitouch gesture support is so common these days across a plethora of devices, even Windows 7 comes with it without the need for additional add-ons. Apart from that, Apple OS X and iOS, Google Android, Palm WebOS alongside other mobile operating systems do feature multitouch gesture support as well, resulting in Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth jumping aboard the bandwagon by announcing the upcoming version of Ubuntu supporting multitouch gestures as well. This new touch framework will be known as UTouch, where it ought to roll out in conjunction with Ubuntu 10.10′s release this October. Needless to say, compatible hardware will need to be in place if you want to take advantage of 4-finger touch support.
