Wrong, you will. You'll just miss out on some of the main features, like multitasking. Just as johndotcom83 said.

No you wont get the update in any form

on the Apple link i provided, do you see the 1st Gen iPod Touch anywhere on there, let alone at the bottom where they list the 2nd Gen and 3rd Gen but not the 1st Gen, durring the keynote jobs was asked about it, and his response was it was a reason to upgrade

No, the people saying you won't be able to use it are right. The original iPhone and the first iPod touch are getting phased out in 4.0.

So if I own a 2nd Gen iPod Touch (32 gigs w/ 4 lines of text on back) and I do get the 4.0 upgrade, what besides multitasking, will I be missing out on? Or better yet, where can I find a breakdown of this information? I've searched but so far have not found great results.

I'd like to know for my iPhone 3G. It could possibly be just Multitasking, i'm not too sure but I hope so. As long as I have all the features they showed and the backgrounds on the homescreen i'll be happy Posted Image

Remember for the big version updates iPod Touch owners have to pay a couple of dollars for the update that has the features (not so for an stripped down update that only has security updates, etc.) So for 2nd gen. owners like myself, this update might not be worth it.

You might change your mind once you see apps you want requiring the 4.0 firmware.

I, for one, I'm not surprised that support for the 1st gen iPhone and iPod touch has been dropped. It's 3-year-old hardware after all. Plus I think there will be a workaround later on, after all that's what hackers do.
