Agreed. I've been following this thread for quite a while know. +1 for
setting TTC enabled by default. I've been using karmic alpha 5 and 6
and I must admit it would make me seek for hardware compatibility
issues/problems if my touchpad didn't respond to tapping. I respect
that both sides have their arguments, but I also agree that TTC is
enabled by default on majority of laptops on the market (at least in
my country). I would opt for leaving it enabled, since IMO more often
the option would be turned on then turned off.
