I've been using mouse gestures for about 2 years now. Actually, if I remember correctly I posted a very similar topic in FES when I found it too. When I realized how useful it was, I just couldn't understand why everyone doesn't use them. Even with my laptop track pad it is amazingly useful.

Same, I'm surprised it isn't standard on at least one OS.
I don't remember anything. Well, I do, but it's really vague. Like I was on drugs the whole time.

Keyboard shortcuts make the gestures almost useless anyway.

This, I can do almost anything with keyboard shortcuts, I rarely use the mouse.
I don't know what you're implying, but you're probably wrong.

Yeah, about the only time I use the mouse is for surfing the interwebs.  Navigating links with a keyboard sucks 37 dicks

Touch screens are for people who are not intelligent enough to use a real interface system.

Then feel up your damn hard drive. The screen is merely a representation of which.

Mac has a one-button mouse. How the f does that work?
If you have used a Mac from at least the last 5 years you'd know you can use a two button variant. Ignorant fools

Use a two button mouse like, think different.

I use a 2 button mouse with a scroll wheel on my Mac.  Also, have you seen this?

Desktop users, your time has come. The new Magic Trackpad is the first Multi-Touch trackpad designed to work with your Mac desktop computer. It uses the same Multi-Touch technology you love on the MacBook Pro. And it supports a full set of gestures, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen. Swiping through pages online feels just like flipping through pages in a book or magazine. And inertial scrolling makes moving up and down a page more natural than ever. Magic Trackpad connects to your Mac via Bluetooth wireless technology. Use it in place of a mouse or in conjunction with one on any Mac computer — even a notebook.

So, it's basically a huge touchpad. Wow, Apple did an IPod -> IPad thing again.
