I agree there are problems with a regular mouse also. However, my main
complaint with Sun's optical mouse is the fact that on-screen cursor
movement is severely reduced if the darn mouse and special mouse pad aren't
lined up perfectly. To get maximum cursor movement, the sides of the mouse
must be parallel with the sides of the mouse pad and perpendicular with the
top and bottom ends. I also discovered (after thinking a mouse was broken)
that sun has two different optical "mice." If you use the new optical mouse
with an older mouse pad, the cursor will barely move because of the difference
in the grids on the new and old mouse pads.
