I still work in DOS much of the time, and am so accustomed to the convenience
of the mouse that I unconsciously try to use it in DOS programs where it
either does not work or has only limited application. In Word, I have all my
macros on the toolbars so that I can use the mouse for those. I can't imagine
using a computer without a mouse. That said, I must confess that I am a fast
two-finger typist, but I still must look at the keyboard when typing, and that
alone makes me unqualified to evaluate the speed of "mousing" versus typing! -
