I asked the Multi Point team regarding Multi Point's support for X Server
and they replied "If you’re referring to a UNIX X Server, no."
Another suggestion was to implement something myself using Multi Point has
an API available. Yes, Multi Point has a full SDK available.

Actually, I am trying to develop applications one such application the OLPC
(One Laptop Per Child) on which we have Sugar OS. A little bit info about
Sugar and OLPC is given here.

I would be thankful for helping me with further steps on how I could
implement Multi Point myself.
