Its odd because I can't conceive of going back to a backwards mouse.
I push my finger up the mouse and the screen moves up - I pull it down and the screen moves down.
Its the most natural thing in the world and I can't understand why it took so long to put in place. I will never switch back to the older way and hate using a Window's machine for this (and many more to be honest) reason.
The Apple mouse drove me so crazy that I bought an Apple-compatible mouse by Logitech. As you suggest, the up and down movement is great.
The sideways movement - not so much. At least 3 or 4 times per day, unintentional movements would take me to previous web sites. This wasn't a problem in apps like Word. However, my client uses web-based apps like Sales Force and Gmail. It was a growing nuisance. I tried it for 6 months before I threw in the towel.
Despite that, I won't be throwing it away. My consulting company will be doing some major equipment upgrades (including migration from Windows to Apple) in the next 6 months, and it will be put to good use.
