I predominantly use Ubuntu at home, which means I am used to "highlight 'copies' and center click 'pastes'" (I believe this is true for all X-windows-sever machines, but I don't know). Unfortunately, that is not the behavior on the machines I use at work (I have a Mac and Win 7.). Is there an application which would let me imitate this mouse behavior for either of those OS's?

You're asking specifically about the paste buffer, and not the "focus under mouse" (which is a classic Unix mouse behavior, but most newer window managers don't use it), correct? – Ben Voigt Feb 19 '11 at 20:19

For Windows 7, see the answer here: How do I keep my active window under others with XMouse in Windows 7? The True X-Mouse Gizmo works well for this on Windows XP, but apparently Windows 7 needs other tweeks. I don't know how to do this on a Mac.
