Why would you buy a serial mouse when you have an ADB or USB port?
I highly recommend trackballs over mice -- my Kensington
TurboMouse (ADB) is still my favorite input device ever, with four
(plus a chord) buttons. I haven't been able to figure out how to
get the fourth button or the chord to work, but I haven't really
needed to, either.
If I can find an ADB 3-button mouse, so much the better. I'd rather
go that route and leave my serial port clear for attaching my Palm or
And, yes, I'm a big trackball fan. But the price is too high for the
trackball, and they tend to be bulkier than I want to carry around.
A regular mouse would be just great...
Still open to suggestions, and thanks for the help,
The plan was simple. Unfortunately, so was Bullwinkle.
