10.7: Reverse Reversed Scrolling direction
Authored by: ustamills on May 25, '12 06:09:16PM

The reason reversing the scrolling is silly is because a touch screen scrolls something different than a trackpad scrolls.

The touch screen (ipad, iphone) moves the content under the glass.

The trackpad moves the screen (a window onto the content, sortof), even if you are only scrolling just one of the windows. This mimics the scroll bar behavior of old (errr... that is still there on the screen).
