Can a touchscreen use a synaptics suite?
So far I have found no distribution that has really been designed for a tablet. Netbook remix, as I've discovered, is little more than Ubuntu with big icons on the desktop. This is next to useless if you haven't a keyboard, nor fingers that come to a fine point.
So a rapid zoom function is clearly necessary, as the folks at Apple (blecchh) and Google have discovered, to really get good use out of a touchscreen.

Also, go to distrowatch.com and check out meego and moblin, they may be what you need. I don't have a touch pad device, so can't get any more specific. Hope this helps.Registered Linux user #526930
