    Mouses Akimbo

    My roommate and I, after looking at software packages for RISC OS, saw one that put a second mouse pointer on the screen; and I got to wondering, is there anything for windows or lunix that would allow one to run mouses akimbo?

    I have a roommate that runs at least 2 mice at a time... both of them USB... they work great together... he uses one for normal use and one for gaming because he uses his opposite hand to navigate in games. It's pretty sweet and you can use both at the same time for anything.

    I'm not sure if it works with a PS2 and a USB. I think the PS2 mouse will take over. Just the nature of the beast.

    I've seen 2 USB mice moving at the same time... it's pretty sweet.

    Well, why don't you just stand up?

    Some people prefer using two mice - I'd give it a try - I think it'd be useful sometimes.

    Well, for one, gaming. I guess you could use it for quick copying and pasting, too.

    That would require you to be two-handed and have a mouse that
    can be used for both left and right handed people, I to be
    honest am quite addicted to my ergonomic mouse and cant bare
    one of those flat symmetric mice.

    So don't use it. If you don't have anything to contribute, don't post.
