Guadec of what year? :P


looks like a recent enough non-forked gtk to me...[1]

unofficial[2] Debian EABI port is pretty much ready for what
tablet's would need from it. D-I, java (argh, but being worked on)
and FORTRAN (Argh!!) are the main incomplete things, but they
do not really touch tablet usage.

What _is_ missing for tablet usage is free UI's for selected things
(input, wifi/bluetooth network connectivity etc), which I expect
the Ubuntu mobile people already be working on.

[1] Well it's still patched but the patches are included in mainstream
distros' gtk and being integrated upstream.
