One problem the 'clickers' have in our office is their tendency to put the
mouse pad w-a-a-a-y in the back of their desk, so they have to r-e-a-c-h
for the mouse every time they use it.  Of course, a lot of them  just fire
up an AS/400 session and live there all day.  But is still makes me grind
my teeth every time I see a mouse so far from civilization.

I have a (well, many) personal opinion (which I'll share):  a green screen
is more useful for heads-down, pound-the-keys data entry than a GUI.  GUIs
are more useful in a onesy-twosy mode, or for graphics.
