That's Hulk for you, a big dumb Mac-loving brute.
I can see some of what he's is saying... my iMac mouse is a Starlogic 8D, and instead of a wheel it has a mini-trackball, which is very sensitive to motion. I often find myself scrolling past something because there are no definitive clicks to tell you that you've just scrolled a single block of lines. But I love the mouse nonetheless; Middle-Right click, and it turns into a trackball, with the optical sensor affecting scrolling!
However, take all the advantages of Apple mice that Hulk described, and apply them to a multibutton mouse, and Apple will have it made. (This computer, the G3, has an ancient optical Mouse Systems 3-button mouse that needs a special reflective mousepad to function, and we've had it longer than this computer!)
