    The short answer is yes. At this time only the iPad 2 received the Multitasking Gestures feature. There seems to be no logical/performance reason for it not to be a standard feature on the original iPad, but only time will tell if Apple will include it in an update.

    For the slightly adventurous Multitasking Gestures can be enabled on the original iPad (it works great on mine). More here:

    BTW, I moved your post to the iPF iPad 1 area for those that follow.

    Or, if you are just talking about the multitasking bar that people mention in many posts - it's what you see when you double click the home button. The screen will rise up and you'll see a bunch of apps in a line/row.

    That is the multitasking bar and in there you can remove any/all apps by pressing them until they wiggle and then pressing the minus sign (-). You're not removing the apps from the iPad, just from the multitasking bar, which removes them from the iPad's current memory.

    P.S. And, the doubleclick on the home button works on both the iPad1 and iPad2, so yes, it's available on both iPad versions. The gestures, however - well, that's another story...
