Window Managers "If you use a traditional desktop like GNOME or KDE, a keyboard-controlled desktop with a minimum of utilities may seem like stepping back 10 or 15 years in the history of interface design. Why bother, when traditional desktops are easy to use and RAM and disk space are so cheap nowadays?" On a related note, there is a new release of xmonad, a tiling window manager for X, written in Haskell. It now has full Xinerama and XRandR support, so you can add, remove, or rotate monitors on the fly.

This is not a problem with the rodent device itself. I think the only place you'll see it is in Microsoft Word, which tries to be "intelligent" with its mouse input handling. It can be very frustrating when you wanted to cut/copy from the middle of a word to the end of the sentence, and Word insists that you must have all or nothing...
