Oh goody, I'm really pleased to see that there is still something
available. I wonder if anyone has written a driver for RicOS yet. Hmm.

It has it's uses. For example, I much prefer d-click as a way of
starting an application from a typical file viewer. The KDE default of a
single click drives me nuts since I expect to select with that single
click. Add the way that it can take _ages_ to actually start the damn
application during which time it seems like you're utterly screwed (so
much for proper multitasking I guess) and I get really cross. I guess a
large part of it is what one is used to though.
