That's funny...when I used Windows, I always got annoyed at how easily I could
move the mouse too far away during a scroll and it would pop back to where it
started. When I moved to linux, and could move the mouse all over the
screen, and still scroll as long as I held the mouse down after I clicked on
the scroll bar, I thought it was wonderful. Just preferences, I guess. :)
