Its pretty amazing watching the barrier to entry drop so quickly
thanks to the rapid development through Open Source collaboration.
Unfortunately multitouch is still not native in the major OS's, this
release requires a flash client. Anyone know if/when Windows/OS
X/Linux intend to support multi pointers?

Fwiw, IDEO are hiring in to this domain in Boston;
