It looks like Ubuntu users will soon be able to touch, tap, swipe and more as multi-touch support is expected to begin arriving with the next update, Ubuntu 10.10. And for anyone familiar with the version number of Ubuntu, that 10.10 translates into October 2010. But that aside, it looks like the support will be focused on the netbook optimized version called Unity and in time be rolled out to include support any number of devices connected devices. That said, it was also said that the initial support would be limited and future support would be in the hands of third party programmers.
