Actually, I bouight a PS/2 mouse a few days ago. It's now a very dead
PS/2 mouse. I will explain the reasons in another message...

Maybe. I nver really got into RISC OS. The few times I've used it, I
didn't really care for it. And I really like having the source code for
everything I depend on (which is the case with this PC, I have the BIOS
source in the TechRef and of course linux comes with source). I have had
to fix things in the past...

I don;t think vi will make use of a mouse...
