I know many people prefer a trackball to a mouse.  I haven't used a 
trackball myself, but I did change from mouse to a Wacom Intuos 3 
graphics tablet a couple of years ago, and can't praise it highly 
enough.  I was finding that only a few minutes of mousing would cause 
pain in my lower arm, and I also found a mouse to be an incredibly 
clumsy tool for illustration software.  The graphics tablet allows me to 
use a stylus that fits very comfortably in the hand, as relaxed as 
holding a pencil, and the degree of control is exceptional.  If you're 
looking into alternative pointing devices, I'd recommend checking out a 
graphics tablet.

I'll stop saying Microsoft is arrogant when
Windows stops saying "Welcome" and instead asks "May I?"
