No; it's different; both subtly and radically.
i'm not familiar with the macbook method...but do you mean like scrolling your browser windows with the touchpad?
(I came here because this thread showed in a Google search for "windows two-finger touchpad", along with a thread at Coffeerooms that's an editorial about it.)
Apparently it is technically possible with any Synaptics touchpad that is capable of "palm filtering" -- avoiding accidental actions when your palm touches the touchpad -- but it is an idea that (again, apparently) somebody at Apple came up with.
The idea is that if you move two fingertips on the touchpad then the contents of the active window will move along with your hand gestures. Also, tapping the pad with two fingers will open the context menu.
The complete concept in action is fantastic. It instantly makes your mouse obsolete and speeds up interaction with the computer to an amazing degree. Even the annoying buttons on the bottom of the touchpad are obsolete.
Must have! Must have!
This not even remotely the same as "edge scroll". If you haven't tried it yourself, then you can't know what it is. It is that radical.
