Video: Canonical shows off Ubuntu 10.10 multi-touch kung fu

Ubuntu 10.10 was recently released, and one of the many feature additions Canonical is excited about is the introduction of the uTouch gesture framework, which brings multi-touch support to the popular Linux distro.

Using uTouch, users can perform a range of actions ranging from displaying the task switcher you see above to minimizing, maximizing, and restoring windows. Curious about how Ubuntu's Unity interface and uTouch might work on your own touch-enabled system? Check the video after the break!

A note for the impatient: up until the 39s mark or so, it's mostly one-finger UI poking.
