    While I don't expect them (MS for Win8 or Logitech for the T650) to necessarily follow Apple's lead & mimic their gestures (though it would be nice if they did) I'm disappointed that the software doesn't allow a higher level of customization of gestures so I can configure them that way myself ...

    Latest changes are only:
    - Double-tap to drag is now supported on the Rechargeable Touchpad T650
    - Swipe gestures across the top edge of the Rechargeable Touchpad T650 are now more reliable

    Nothing to do with natural scrolling or 3 finger gestures to switch apps

    Good news, in 6.51.8 you can enable "Natural scrolling"!

    Just go in "Scrolling" tab, next click on "Scrolling options" and check the first option ...et voilą!

    The scrolling configuration described in this thread is specifically for the Logitech T650 Touchpad. It's not for native windows scrolling, e.g. using the touchscreen or mouse wheel. I suppose those would be subject to configuration options for the specific computer/touchscreen or the driver for the mouse in question.
