I asked around yesterday and as far as I could see nobody were
planning any specific work on (multi-)touch with Gtk+. As the
companies doing Linux products with that capability had gone with Qt.

But just now have come across this news:


I guess they are talking about something related to Unity, which is
Canonical's UX of choice for netbooks. Unity was supposed at the UDS
to sit in a similar place to GNOME Shell so it will most probably be
using multi touch with Gtk+.

If anybody has more details in how this impacts OLPC and Sugar, it
would be great if they could share.
