Best Mouse for Programers

After geeking about mouses in the past 5 years, here's few i consider the best, for programers.

Note, if you are on linux, it's essential to get a mouse with spin wheel. [see Mouse with Spin Wheel]

Logitech MX Master

Great features about this mouse are:

11 butons, nice, with battery life that's some 250 hours.

The flaw is that it doesn't have wheel that spins.

Logitech G502

My current. Spin wheel is super nice.

Logitech G600

This one, is superb. I currently use. Many buttons, each one is mapped to some command, so i don't have to switch to keyboard just to copy/past or resize window or stuff.

Though, it's not ergonomic to press these buttons all day for years.

If you have fat thumb, this is not for you.
