Default Touchscreen OS ?

I just gained a 19" touchscreen monitor for free.

I'm curious about setting up a basic internet/music box with touchscreen.......any idea's as to the best way to do this ?

Who is the touch screen by? There may already exist drivers from said company on their website that will handle all the work for you.

Hmm, even if you found a touch OS, unless they natively have the drivers for your device/touch screen you'd be SOL.

IIRC Ubuntu (or one of the buntu's) has touchscreen support out of the box. (software, drivers, etc.) All part of the move to Ubuntu desktop on smartphone.
