Snow Leopard is adding multitouch, but to what?

    So, Snow Leopard is supposed to add multi-touch gestures to MacBooks that dodn't support them in Leopard. In a Gizmodo article on the subject, they said that this includes MacBooks that previously only supported two-finger scrolling, which I assume includes early-2008 white MacBooks.

    My question is: is that really what Snow Leopard will do, or is Gizmodo just getting my hopes up for nothing?

    It's adding the 3 and 4 finger swipes to MacBooks that only had multi-touch before.

    The white MacBooks do not have a Multi-Touch trackpad.

    Does this include the early 2008, white MacBooks? Sorry for being annoying, but I've heard conflicting reports on this.

    I would believe that this means the laptops that had the three finger multi-touch already, such as the Rev A MacBook Air and Rev D MacBook Pro.

    No. No white MacBooks have Multi-Touch trackpads.

    Correct!

    If that guy has found a software solution and describe the symantec track pad that is in the white macbook as being able to track four fingers then I assume that is what apple did in snow leopard no? I mean the hardware is there otherwise the guy wouldn't have been able to make this possible so why wouldn't it be possible to see multi touch and more specifically what I need in it the Chinese character finger writing on the white macbooks?
