In OS X 10.6.8 I could do a 4 finger swipe left/right to open the application switcher on my early 2008 MBP. I can't figure out how to do the same with my 2012 Mac mini using the Magic Trackpad. Is this even possible with OS X 10.8.3?

I too wondered this. I believe I read it was gone. An equally easy (almost) way is click cmd + tab and cycle through them. (Q to close).

You may already know this but it's the next best way.

4 finger swipe for the command tab switcher? Or expose?

Four-finger pinch launches LaunchPad in Lion and above. The Application Switcher has always been <Command><tab>.
There's also Mission Control (Exposť as was in SL), which is a four-finger stroke upwards.
"Application Windows" (show windows for a single app) is four-finger downward stroke.
The four-finger strokes left and right do different things now.

I probably forgot about it. Thanks!

Command tab switcher.

Thanks for that info, benwiggy. The 4 finger left/right swipe was set for switching apps on my MBP running OS X 10.6.8 in System Preferences.

I'll start using the command + tab keys from now on.
