And if you reread what I’ve posted in this thread, I might be making a more subtle point than you’re crediting me with. This page was last edited on 28 November , at In a press-and-hold, the user presses and holds the single button. The idea was a consistent and intuitive interface — the Smalltalk interface that Apple had shelled out so much for a demonstration made rather confusing use of the mouse button at least by standards and the Mac which was already working under a dictate of strict simplicity because of original project lead Jef Raskin wanted something simpler and more robust. I still get annoyed at the behaviour of old school emacs, gv, xfig, and some others Maybe I should explain it this way.

You also have to get a really big mousepad if you have a 24″ iMac. To uninstall the other software, follow the appropriate steps for your version of Windows.

There is not a mouse or trackball made that will not function with Linux, and that is not perfectly and arbitrarily configurable. This is not about mice. Tell us some more! I’m not bashing Apple. In one of the labs to which I refer above got a vax. Scrollmice almost always mount their scroll wheels on an internal spring-loaded frame and switch, so that mokse pushing down makes them work as an extra button, made easier to do without accidentally spinning it by wheel detents present in most scrollmice.

MacOS X didn’t even need the control panel — its predecessor, NextStep, was already a multibutton interface and Apple btuton only refined the interface since then. Use whatever effing mouse you want with whatever OS you want.

The advantages of Bhtton For those of you know know terry, that is a very funny joke. For example, a left-handed user may reverse the buttons, usually with a software setting.

The max point reward for answering a question is A one button mouse here, a one button mouse, no three button mice anywhere. I’m pretty sure I’d need to log buhton on if that were the case. I couldn’t live without though, especially while browsing. Get to Know Us.

I’m impressed by 2 things: Except me, because I was running Unix on mine, and X, and needed it. It really was always possible to plug a three-button mouse into a mac, and it really would work if you did. The current state of the art, as you say, is utterly unrelated to my commentary.

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US. The whole argument is sort of pointless, and the world has generally moved from it. The problem here is that I did not say “Oh, Mac, you are the perfect computer and always has been and nothing could ever go wrong, here, let me give you a blow job or whatever you want because you are so astoundingly perfect” that Mac Symps become outlandishly offended!

True, the current incarnation of the Apple mouse is a 3-button mouse, though a somewhat unique implementation of it that works rather well. This allows user instructions to apply intllieye mice or pointing devices that do not use conventional button placement. My three main complaints, in order of importance: Still, it’s something to keep in mind. All that said, like I said at the beginning, I’ve been using two and three button mice on my Macs since or so, but I wouldn’t have bothered had Apple not added Buton Menus at that point.
