I've tried it with both mice active and then again with the wired mouse unplugged. It hasn't changed the performance of the M$ mouse. Performance remains pretty much the same. If you move it...

Decided to pick up a bluetooth mouse on a whim today. The Apple one unfortunately is still crippled with one button so I had to pass on that. The only one really available on the market today is...

You can do a clean install. Just select the option to Erase and Install instead of upgrading. I've got the 19.95 upgrade version as well and that's what I did.

You could place your /Users...
