"Don't like" might be pushing it... but, definitely, "are more sensitive to" changes. I've had to standardize on the same keyboard/mouse on all of my machines jst because it is... "disturbing" ("feels funny") to move from one to another in the course of a day/hour/minutes. (even worse when key placements differ!)

My objection with "newer" mice is:
- only two buttons
- scroll wheels that "jitter" (you move it "a lot" and somehow end up back where you started -- noisey quadrature decoders?)
- boring shapes (even the klunky C7 was more inspired!)

[aside: ever notice how telephones have not been designed to "feel good" in your hands?!]
