        On the other hand, heads-down keying probably is as fast either way.
There is no requirement that mouse movement be used in a gui.  That's just
an extra.  

        Agreed, that should be just an extra, but most of the interface
designers don't design them that way, instead of giving a keyboard
alternative to a function, they make it a button only. That's my main gripe
with GUI, poor/lazy designing. Even JD Edwards, one of the original AS400
major accounting packages, with it's new client server interface, forces the
user into using a mouse for too many functions. As does most every GUI
interface in existence. 

        Damn those bad programmers, damn them all to MS 3.1.
