    I'm using a mighty mouse right now, and I hate it. Can't seem to turn the sensitivity up high enough and it's maxed. I like my old MS mice, but they seem to go nuts in VMWare sometimes. What are you guys using? Any suggestions?

    I use a VX revolution, and I love it... I want the new VX Nano, but it doesn't have all the buttons which is what I love...

    I have the 2 on the thumb for "forward/back", the pointer finger for volume up/down, and below the scroll wheel is mute...

    not sure, but mine speeds up like crazy. are you guys installing the MS drivers on your mac? or just letting whatever os x picks up manage it?
