    Hey, an infestation of mice in the home is no bargain. One can set traps,
    seal up entrances, etc., but eventually professional extermination is
    required.

    Sort of like an infestation of Windows ...

    Except one can remove that by installing linux.

    - From a kernel point of view that's very sensible. Modules should not be
    loaded by effective UID > 0.

    - From an OS that prides itself on a sloppy interface, well, that's what
    you'd expect really.

    This is a good example of the Linux kernel having better driver support
    though since most, nearly all, mice are covered by the generic drivers.

    Yes, mouse cursors that have Vista totally compromised when the user merely
    visits a Web page (no intervention required) are not quite as risky as a mouse
    being physically plugged.

    Tray Pardus Linux (it's a cat). Will get rid out of mouse problems immediately.
