Count me in.

I had to use the bloody thing in my last job and I think the user interface is a
complete disaster. The menu system with the three buttons isn't just
counter-intuitive, it's also a killer for your hands. You constantly have to
have your fingers on all three buttons and that made me always keep my hand very
tense and I sometimes got cramps. I really hate learning keystrokes but I would
have done so with Interleaf, if only there would have been any. I got out in
time before getting CTS, but I'm not keen on repeating the experience.

Apart from that, I agree that using a mouse a lot is likely to get you into
trouble in the long run - maybe in a couple of years our PCs will take
