I am an Apple Mac user for a whole range of reasons too tedious to go into here. I like the user interface, for one thing. And I really value the stability one gets from running on a Unix-based system. But there is one thing about the Mac that has always bugged me — Apple’s insistence on a one-button mouse. Not sure of the origins of this, but it seems to have been dogma from the days of the original Lisa design. This evening, though, I couldn’t find my Apple mouse and plugged in to my PowerBook’s USB port a PC optical mouse that happened to be lying around — and guess what! — the right button works just fine, and enables me to all the stuff I used to have to do Ctrl-click for with my Apple rodent. The scroll wheel works fine too. Eureka!
