I thought I'd get 3/4 finger gestures with SL?

    Ok, correct me if I'm wrong, but if I can scroll or right-click with two fingers, doesn't that make my trackpad a multi-touch trackpad? Thus, shouldn't I be seeing options for the 3- and 4-finger gestures now that I've installed Snow Leopard?

    FYI, I have a Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz purchased at the end of 2007.

    Thanks for any insight!

    No, there is a hardware difference in recognizing two fingers and recognizing and tracking up to 4 separate movements.

    Detecting two fingers doesn't require tracking multiple points (it's just one big point). Different hardware.
