why trackball can't beat mouse.
had a revelation last week, why trackball can't beat mouse.
Mouse excels at fast straight line jerks. (because, you simply push it, and this naturally can be done very fast, and naturally results in straight line movement.)
So, if the task is fast straight line jump to n points, mouse beats trackball, pen, trackpad, trackpoint.
For playing First Person Shooter games, the demand for the pointer control is exactly that, fast jump to n points, meaning, straight lines movements of the mouse.

hover auto-raise window and get a trackball
one most efficient workflow is to turn on mouse hover auto-raise window, and get a trackball.
here's how: Mouse Hover to Auto-Raise Window
never press 【Alt+Tab ↹】. that's most inefficient. Instead, just role ball and window will come up, and, set ▤ Menu key to switch to last window. That is what you do 95% time.
