Description Simon Strandman 2007-02-28 14:20:00 UTC
Xorg by default uses a threshold based mouse acceleration. This is not very good
for modern mice, and increasing the acceleration usually just makes the mouse
jumpy and imprecise. Xorg also support a much better exponential mouse
acceleration similar to the one in Windows and Mac OS X which can be enabled by
setting the threshold to 0. This should be used by default.

I agree things could be better, but let's stick to keeping things on the
upstream report.
