New OLPC software to support multi-touch

Good news for OLPC users, the software engineering team announced today that they have built in multi-touch support into the next version of the OS. The new features are expected to appear on the XO-1.75 notebook.

The new XO-1.75 is part of the new tablet generation of the OLPC program, and will be one of the first to use the MeeGo virtual keyboard. The new XO-3 tablet (expected at CES 2011) is expected to use the MeeGo and multi-touch exclusively.
