Exactly, try using it 10-12 hours a day, it will start to hurt. The clicks are little hard compared to regular mice.

I have the the older mighty mouse, which also I was not very happy with. Neat engineering I would say, but missed the big chunky scroll of a Logitech!

A technical query,
we have a mac mini in our office. Is it possible to connect remotely to it from a windows system, like 'Remote Desktop' in windows?
I have heard there is something called 'Apple Remote Desktop' but it's not free. Is there any other alternative?
We want more than one person to use it at the same time. As a first step even screen sharing is fine.

I have tried setting up a VNC server (for screen sharing) on the mac and connecting from windows, but it didn't work.

I guess it should work, if you can tunnel through correctly.

VNC should work, check your firewall and make sure VNC is allowed as well the in bound connections. You can look at this steps for smoother installation/configuration.

Are you trying to access it from out side the office?
If yes, you will need to go through VPN and the once your m/c gets assigned a local Network IP, VNC should work. The mac mini should be yet another UNIX like box, which all of us regularly access through VNC.

No, this is from within the office. It is connected to the same LAN as other systems. I am able to access the shares on the lan from the mac. One difference though, it is not part of the domain.

If that is the case, then you should be able to rsh to the machine, start a vnc session and be able to access it from your windows m/c.

OK, it turns out, the problem was with the real vnc viewer. It was not supported on windows 7.
I tried to another vnc viewer (tight vnc), and it worked! So there wasn't anything to be done in the mac apart from enabling screen sharing.

Also the opposite, accessing windows screen from a vnc viewer in mac, too worked.

By the way now you have also the enterprise version of Real VNC. That allows you login through your UNIX account rather than a separate password.
It also has encryption built in.

I found UltraVNC as reliable solution in Windows 2008/R2 or Win 7. It is very good and Free! Enterprise version of Real VNC comes with a price though.
