Snow Leopard to Feature Four Finger Gestures for Old MacBooks

A 9to5mac reader has noted that users of the older generation MacBooks and MacBook Pros will be able to make use of four finger gestures on the device’s trackpad.

This is said to be featured in the much anticipated release of Snow Leopard, where another 9to5 reader has made mention of a special version of Flash, and notes that not everything is currently 64-bit. The reader states:

“Well, i downloaded it (torrent), and it didn’t contain any malware. It gives you 4 finger multitouch for the older mbp’s early 2008, even though i hacked it in leopard. It also contains flash out of the box, pretty nice i guess, finder isn’t very stable, half the preference panes are still in 32 bit, furthermore not all the applications are in 64-bit yet. Also, updating it in snow leopard doesn’t seem to do anything because it didn’t start downloading the latest version. Furthermore the theme is changed very slightly, and that’s mostly it. It’s also faster than leopard if, but will be even faster since not everything is 64bit yet, and can take advantage of that.”

In case you missed it, a few builds of Snow Leopard had leaked onto a few torrent sites a while back.
