    Hi,

    Is the multitouch feature fully functional in XP or Vista?

    For ex: Will i be able to pinch to zoom the fotos in the "Windows Fax Viewer"?

    Nope the multitouch gestures are Mac OS X only.

    The only gestures I have noticed are the two fingered scroll and the two fingered right click. This is with Windows Vista.

    Good question. I have to use Windows for my company's net sometimes:(, and I've found that control(right)-clicking makes 'doze a bit more tolerable. I suppose it would be too much to expect the preference for a right/left bottom corner control-click to work...(loved doing that in the Apple Store, thumb tap and up comes contextual menu).

    Suppose most feasible solution is using a two-button USB mouse...
