IdiotOnMyLeft writes “There is a short article at Gear Live that tries to explain why Apple still sticks with a one-button mouse. It points out the fact that although it is perfectly possible to use a two-button mouse on a Mac for 7 years now, developers are forced to rethink their design approach and can’t flood the right-click menu…”
Hmmm… I never thought of this as a way to ensure certain implementation details in software for the platform. I wonder what would happen if [[Apple]] took a poll of its installed base to see if they’d rather have a 2 button mouse by default. Me? Well, My mother is getting a computer for the first time ever, and I’m glad there’s only one button for her to deal with.
