From Doug Montalbano's recent post:
The recent thread by Victor Chapel and David (not an idiot)
Ibbetson discuss possible alternative nomenclature for
the currently labeled left, right, and middle mouse buttons.
I must admit that I haven't been following this thread, but for some reason
it just now caught my attention.
I'm left-handed and can use the mouse easily with either my left or my right
hand. Regardless of what hand I use (or what side the mouse is on), the left
button is still on the left and the right button is still on the right. I
guess I don't understand the problem.
