Yeah, to get the full benefit, you have to go into the Universal
Access prefs and turn on Full Keyboard Access, but its really nice.
And its been my experience moving between my Mac, my mom's PC, PCs and
Linux boxes at State, that the keyboard shortcuts are a lot more
consistent on the Mac as well.
And drop the 2 buttons OK? We get the point. You're too lazy/cheap to
buy a $15 mouse after you just forked over many times that for a new
computer that is otherwise better. And if you did fork over the cash,
you'd discover that it works. Period. No "Windows is building a Driver
Information Database" for the mouse, nothing. It Just Works.
