I've always been surprised by the number of people who (for example)
pick up the mouse to select the current line of text. It's so much
easier, IMHO, to press <Home><Shift-End>. It's rather frustrating to
watch an "expert" picking zir way slowly through a series of editing

How do other people feel?
