As a NEXTSTEP dev , I totally agree. Every important tools (scrollbar,
menus, shade button) should be on the left and the lesser on the right
(close button). I think the Windows/Motif display is the end of the

About your syndrome, did you try dvorak keyboard (I use it everyday and
it's awesome, I can tip 9 hours with no fatigue)?
