I've not seen it in practice, but a good friend has recently (like,
last friday) installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix on touchscreen
tablets and it works fine.

Note that netbook remix is good for this because, as same friend says,
"fat icons for fat fingers" (ie, finger is bigger than mouse cursor)


Not good enough for Republicans. Peter Diamond, a 70-year-old
economist at MIT, just won the Nobel Prize in Economics. Peter
Diamond, the very same 70-year-old economist at MIT, was appointed to
the Federal Reserve in April by President Obama but has had his
confirmation blocked by Senate Republicans who doubt his economic
qualifications for the job. Strange place that United States.
