No automatic screen rotation, but can be implemented in scripts,
depending upon the xorg version.
Possible issues with the touch screen depending on chipset.
The onscreen keyboard won't float on top of the Unity dash.
Unity isn't designed for touch so doing things like dragging, right
click and long-press might not work the way you hope.
