I am one of the people that HATE a mouse. It requires me to move my hand from the
keyboard slowing me down. It is much easier to slide my fingers over to hit the
<ctrl Fx> key stroke than it is to go find the @#$%^%^&& mouse and do it. 
Especially when I change desktops very frequently. Except for cut and paste
operations I think a mouse is STUPID but I am sure a LOT of people
will disagree. I guess that is why there are choices. :-)
