Since I'm skeptical about USBs, I have a Logitec Marble trackball.  I like
trackballs.  Trackballs save desk space.  Trackballs are less straining on
the arm!  The only complaint would be that the mouse is slow in single 
speed mode, kind of like the Macintosh mouse in single speed mode (I guess
that's one mickey per pixel), but you can set the acceleration speed under
X so it's not a big deal.
