Which is after 10 minutes of using the single button mouse with the 
first Imac I used, I never take the new ones out of the box with a new 
Mac. A simple Logitech or MS Wheel mouse works so vastly better. To my 
mind it is Apple being different to be different, not better.

I personally recommend anyone using Scribus to have at least a two 
button mouse - minumum.
