While officially rescinding my previous rants against the TabletPC format, I'm still currently staring at a windows box. With the recent announcements of the Mandriva's and Ubuntu's latest releases, it seems an appropriate time to focus the usual my distro is better than your distro rants with the following question: which distro, in your experience, actually offers best tablet support out of the box? Key features include pen (and pressure) support, handwriting recognition, screen rotation and suspend to disk/ram.
