Does it let you adjust the pointer speed? Without acceleration, that is.

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
Funny, it literally is a matter of getting things straight. (In this case, it would be the pointer curve.) I'm not going to discuss things further, because I've already conceded the point that linear response is the only logical, universal choice in favor of calling it all "personal preference." Still, it amazes me how some people have no standards about a device they use for hours on end to interact with a device they do all their work on.

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
OK, I'll agree that it's a point-of-view-issue. To me (and I, apparently, might be the only person on the planet with this point of view) it is the difference between "working" and "not working". I've unplugged my mouse and stopped using anything on Mac that can't be controlled via the touchpad or a graphic tablet.

Oh, and I wasn't really exaggerating: See the 7th comment on this question. How hard should it be to land your pointer on a button?

@Martín Marconcini: I agree; I am romanticising the subject, but feature bloat is one of the things I cannot help feeling strongly about. It's a major usability issue (especially with Mac OS's acceleration curve) and to think that it could've been easily prevented - by removing code... Also, to make an easy point: If you've used so many systems, you already know that each one has a different acceleration code, and thus, mouse response. Linear response is the only universal one.

I'm only against commercial solutions: It's ridiculous to have to pay money to be able to use a mouse. I'll give that a try, thanks.
