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. :)
