Multi-touch Trackpad

So, I've got myself a new laptop with a multi-touch mouse/trackpad on it. What can I do, and how, with this hardware and Windows 7?

I believe they are trying to configure the touch pad for multi-touch similar to what a mac has.

Sorry, no problems as such... just wondering what I can do with the multi-touch features and where they are, etc.

Is it not implemented yet?

To the best of my knowledge it is not directly implemented to windows, yet. II know that there are slightly modified versions made for tablet and table pc's that include multi touch, But then thoses are also touch screens.

Edit
I stand corrected there is some multi-touch functions but it looks like its strictly scrolling functions.

I've just found the right driver for my touchpad, complete with multi-touch functions; although I think they are more on the Synaptics side rather than Windows. It lets me do the 'pinch to zoom' gesture, where that gesture is translated as Ctrl+Scroll-wheel (works in most places). That's the only multi-touch gesture in there that I've found so far!
