Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

After using multitouch trackpads on both a Macbook pro from 2009 and my Asus laptop for a while, I have decided to always disable part of the gestures, only keeping the vertical scroll.

The rest is very rarely needed in my experience, and tends to trigger itself randomly at the worst moment.

I agree that dual-finger vertical scroll is much nicer than anything before though.
