I've been using a Logitech Wheel Mouse (optical) for more than a year now
on my OS/2-based pc.

My Sparc has an old-style optical mouse (requires special HARD TO FIND

The new optical mice rock hard core man. I can't believe it, but now
there is a mouse that will track on your ASS. I play CounterStrike quite
a bit and wouldn't trade my optical Logitech for anything less than the
cost of a new one.

This optical mouse is so accurate it immediatly improved my scores in the
game. It tracks on any surface at all (I haven't tried a mirror).

BTW, I don't bother with a pad anymore. Too confining.
