    Here's an article with some interesting bits. One, it says Samsung used Linux on their new UMPC until they could get a hold of Microsoft's Windows version.

    Two, they speculate on Apple coming out with their own offering of this type, based on Apple's recent touch screen technology patents.

    The article doesn't really contain anything new regarding Apple, but I love the desktop on the Samsung. :D

    Well yeah, of course it could run Linux. However, wouldn't they lose touch-screen capabilities by installing it?

    There is existing tablet support for Linux, and Samsung would be able to write new device drivers for their own hardware if needed.
