what are the changes to the multitouch gestures?
i'm using 10.5.8
my trouble with multitouch is when scrolling vertical in a spreadsheet (openoffice) it has an undesirable lateral scroll.
is there a way to turn off the two finger lateral scroll just for openoffice?
can i change the rate of lateral scroll globally?
I would also like to eliminate the pinch zoom in/out in the spreadsheet as it drives me crazy.
does any of this work different in 10.6?
are there any 3rd party solutions that work with 10.5.8 or 10.6?
thank u sooooo much! this would make my mac experience so much better!

How to legally upgrade from Tiger now that the Mac Box Set Is no longer available?
I need to upgrade from OS X 10.4 to a more recent OS. I understood that this version of Snow Leopard (currently £26) was strictly for Leopard users - and although would technically work, the Mac Box Set was required for a properly licensed upgrade. However, since the release of Lion, it appears that the Mac Box Set is no longer available. Consequently, is this now the officially sanctioned route from Tiger to Snow Leopard (and also as a stepping-stone to Lion for a sufficiently spec'd Mac), or is any upgrade path from Tiger simply no longer available?
