I'll +1 here, I have one hand on the keyboard lingering around the ctrl and
alt buttons, and the other on the scroll wheel. When I'm not typing, I use
it to scroll all over the place. It's become second nature. The only thing
that's irked me is (through upgrading to win2k and living with the default
driver) losing the ability to bring focus to a window through the wheel
(where I start to scroll in an inactive window and it becomes active). That
and (on this mouse anyway) the wheel is also a button, and clicking it
brings up the file explorer. Now if I could tweak what app comes up, I'd be
in heaven (the explorer is close though).
