Two simple options
Authored by: Bookman on Jun 03, '03 09:17:57PM

Simple option One: Make a multi-button mouse available as a BTO option for every Mac. Elsewhere it was suggested that iMacs and eMacs should get one button mice, but I disagree. I own an iMac, use iMacs at work, and wouldn't go back to a one button mouse.

Simpler Option Two: Sell a two-button scroll wheel mouse with EVERY Mac, and enable users to select a "one button" option in the Mouse SPP that treats both buttons as a left click. (Werd said this elsewhere, and it seems the most logical solution to the 'kids can't figure out two-button mice' argument. It is senseless to penalize adult users who CAN appreciate the benefits of the ability to right-click just because kids cannot.)

As was also said elsewhere, millions of kids have managed to use multi-button mice with Windows. Apple's education market share isn't going to plummet because they forego the single button mouse.

And one final comment: DO NOT base the new mouse on the Apple Pro Mouse. It is probably the least durable optical mouse ever designed. The weak point? The spot where the cord enters the mouse body. Where I work we have worn out at least half of the Pro mice that we received with iMacs we purchased. ALL of them failed at this exact point.

*Glances right to see two black apple pro mice hanging on display, being unusable*
