Windows has been the only player in the world of multi-touch for a while. Microsoft recently pushed Windows 7 multi-touch technology, and with the advent of inexpensive tablets like the $69 Bamboo Touch, this technology has been steadily growing in popularity as of late. Apple, too, has tried to capitalize on this, pushing out the new iPad multi-touch tablet last Wednesday.
With this demonstration, though, GNU/Linux has shown itself to be a player in the multi-touch world. In the video, a patched version of Eye of GNOME takes input from the multi-touch screen to resize and move an image.
