    So the surface has five-point touch capability according to the marketing specs.

    Question is - what are these five-finger gestures I am missing? Or the three or four point gestures for that matter?

    And on a related note, Windows8 supports 10 points on compatible touch-screens...what are the 10-finger gestures!?

    Twisticles, just because that many touch pints are supported doesn't mean there are gestures that use the touch points. Instead you can open up an art app and use all five fingers to draw a rainbow and stuff like that. Or for some of the more intense games, multiple points of touch input are required. That doesn't mean everything in the OS or every app has a use for the multiple inputs though.

    Same with the 10 points of touch.
