By all means try out Windows 8 and see whether you can modify its gestures out-of-the-box.
Both operating systems have their default gestures so they're the same across the board, regardless of what computer you're using. Not giving the end-user a plethora of alternative gestures for each single command is a very wise decision by both Apple and Microsoft. At least Apple still gives you some degree of control with a couple of gestures and by allowing you to disable them.
I wonder if it's really necessary for you to come here ask for support in this manner. It doesn't make look you more interesting nor does it motivate people to help you out. Anyway, a quick Google search probably would have led you to BetterTouchTool
. It's completely free and gives you great control over your trackpad. Hopefully it relieves some of the frustration you're feeling towards OS X Mountain Lion.
