    But that's just 1 way of inputting multitouch commands, and quite frankly, I think the one they had available.
    What do you think about Apple's (and some netbooks', these days) multi-touchpads?

      Multi-touch is also incredibly useful for trackpads ^_^

      I see someone else commented on that before me. Whoops!

      Yeah, the MacBook's multi-touch is incredible, although a little too prone to error (particularly trying to right-click with two fingers).

        I just want to say that mac is not the first multitouch pad and the only one touchpad proposing this feature.

        I'm on a asus laptop and here is the default multitouche :
        3 thingers mean right click
        2 thingers mean middle click (or scroll if you slide)
        1 = select or clic
        etc... with of course the default scroll on right side and bottom etc.

        In my school class, half of the users using linux have this feature enabled. (I want to precise is not the case under windows...) "driver missing feature perhaps...

          This actually works out-of-the-box with linux? Sweet.
          How about pinching your fingers and stuff like that? I guess it doesn't work with any apps by default, but does it at least create some kind of key-event or similar?

            Yes it works by default.

            Didn't tried as you said there's no apps using it.
            But I think everything is possible since it can detect 3 thingers to do right clic and 2 thingers scrolling...
