Ubuntu 10.10 Multi Touch

While some folks have panned the new Unity interface for netbooks in the latest release of Ubuntu Linux, there is one kind of nifty new feature included in Ubuntu 10.10 for netbooks and tablets: the new uTouch gesture support.

Unity includes a multitouch gesture library, which lets you perform actions like expanding and moving windows, launching multiple windows, and minimizing and maximizing windows. The framework supports up to 4 finger touch input.

Canonical has released a demo video showing just some of the new uTouch features included in Ubuntu 10.10′s Unity interface. You can check it out after the break.
