Windows 7: Is it possible to get that Mac three finger swipe feature?

Is it possible to get that Mac three finger swipe feature?

As seen in this video:

Is it possible to emulate that "sliding" feature where you can switch to different windows so easily? I can't believe it's not a built in feature it would be so much easier to navigate through windows than having to point and click on them!

The closest you can get in standard windows shell would be probably using Synaptics driver for touchpad and setting 3 finger gesture to Win+Tab (or two times it to switch between windows) or Ctrl+Tab (to switch between tabs).

Of course, there would be no "sliding" animation itself, only standard Win+tab animation.

I have a Synaptics touchpad, I went to the mouse device section but I don't see anything about the 3 finger gesture. Where do you control that from?
