What pointing device do you use?

  • Mechanical mouse
  • Optical mouse
  • Trackball
  • Touchpad
  • Touchpad with multi-finger detection
  • Pointing stick
  • Stylus
  • Touchscreen without stylus
  • Graphics tablet
  • Wii-like remote
  • Light pen
  • Joystick
  • Game controller
  • Eye movement tracker
  • Electrodes in brain
  • Windows or X API (I'm software)
  • Freak cosmic rays
  • Moving mouse pointer with keyboard
  • Navigating GUIs with keyboard only
  • I don't use GUIs
  • Other

This got a bit too long, sorry.

Update: added an "Other" option, with all the geeks out there there's bound to be something I just didn't think of.

Update: this is already too long so we'd better not add any jokes unrelated to computers like laser pointer, just my index finger, conducting baton, walking stick or umbrella, magic wand or staff, two hands, etc.

[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
