comment Fusion: create “headless” virtual machines?
@Paul, confirming that defaults write... is not required. I'm running vmrun without no problem, without the defaults... command.

@Cody Gray "superiority lost on me"? No one has insulted you here.

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
@Cody Gray They had things straight on the last release of the Mac OS X... but they decided to fix something that wasn't broken, and remove an API function that allowed you to modify the mouse curve to your personal preferences. Now it's not a matter of personal preferences, it's a matter of only using Cupertino's preferences. And not allowing personal preferences for something as simple as a mouse setting is horribly wrong for a computer that costs $1.3K+ dollars, and is marketed as "superior" to Windows.

Does not work for Snow Leopard because Jobs decided to drop an API function which is a dependency of that program. It only works for Mac users with old versions of the OS.

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
I downloaded controllermate and it is highly unusable, plus you have to dole out cash for it. 15 minutes of my life that I'm never going to recover.

@aib +2 for not being the only person in the planet that is frustrated. Right now I bought a new Logitech laser mouse and it's sitting right next to the computer as a decoration device. Feeling like going back to Best Buy and getting my money back.

@Cody Gray I tried that article and it doesn't work. The mouse still has acceleration. It's incredible how so much ppl say that Macs are the best, yet Cupertino cannot get something so simple straight.

comment Make Mac OS X mouse acceleration more Windows-like
This is the most unusable program I've used in my life. The interface is so bloated (it looks almost like Photoshop), that I never was able to open the acceleration settings. -1 for wasting my time.

Yes, it works on Snow Leapard - without acceleration, defeating the purpose of the program. -1 for wasting my time.
