    I got a new mouse!!!

    SO today i finally decided to replace my worn out, hunk of junk, Sony mouse. I want to one of the nearby electronic stores and this mouse caught my eye. (http://www.our-picks.com/archives/2006/12/03/m-d13ur-by-elecom/)

    It is an encredebly cool mouse, So after i got home, i plugged it in and it immediately registered with my Ununtu com, and then i noticed there is this button on the side of it. And apparently this mouse is made for windows, and the button is supposed to be programed for whatever you want, but in ubuntu it is used to rotate the desktop cube, and copy and past things. I dont know how to program the button, but it feals like this mouse was made with Linux in mind.

    either way im very happy with it

    for me oblivion works just as fine and in certain aspects better then in windows, and personally thats all i need, but i still keep 2 windows flavors around for other things ((mostly school things that i need windows for)) but i keep a few games on it.

    it might not be free, in either sense of the word but the best thing for linux gaming is transgaming cedega, of course you can always pirate it too

    well i take that back, the best thing is when designers realize that linux is very viable for gaming and make install scripts a la UT2004 which runs better in linux then in windows on my computer

    Once linux is more mainstream we should see some more native games, hopefully linux stays clear of the mac effect.

    I think it looks ugly, it looks like what I think windows is a box with no soft edges.
