Haha! Here I am using shift religiously, at the same time saying that people don't usually press two keys at once. Fantastic.<br><br>Okay, I see your point. The iPhone's touch screen is also definitely very responsive; something about it feels really good compared to the usual touch screen. Such a screen on a freed phone would certainly be a nice thing.
<br>Still, I think that most of these gestures can be achieved on a resistive touch screen. Retracting 90% of my pointless rant... perhaps multitouch gestures could be implemented (emulated) for resistive touch screens, then once a capacitive touch screen comes along the same interface could be applied except without the emulation part. I still think most of these gestures can be picked up (with some accuracy) via single touches, and having trackpad-like functionality would be fun.
<br><br>By the way, I have been linked to this X Server modification from four different and completely unrelated places. (I'm toying with big optical multitouch tables, too). Weird...<br>I guess that shows how awesome it is!
<br>It would indeed be nice to see this widely used, because I'm sure that would encourage more development - perhaps even a merge with the regular x server along with a stronger effort by folks to prepare for the future. (Hopefully software will soon stop assuming particular input methods... and I want multiple drag and drop operations!)

Yes, but you're also ignoring that capacitive touch screens are more<br>durable and longer lasting than resistive touch screens. And I don't<br>know if you've ever used an iPhone, but i had no problems using the
<br>multi-touch freatures one handed or with two thumbs or a thumb and<br>index finger. Try it for 15 or 20 mins before you knock it.<br><br>**Sorry for the double Dylan. Gmail stinks at handling this list.<br><br>_______________________________________________
