        Is this some kind of zoomer or millennial brain damage where they believe other people and repeat what they are saying?

          because it detaches your pointer device's position from that of your virtual pointer
          it's an inorganic shitshow that goes against how we use mice, and it's frankly bizarre anyone ever even came up with it, when its only purpose is to undermine THE reason we use mice, and the main original innovation of mice

    Totally agree, I always hated this shit. You move a little fast and the cursor suddenly goes crazy. Seems that a lot of people only knew this shit and think this is just how a mouse works.

    But at least in Windows there is a checkbox to disable it. In Linux there is not... To disable it you have to use the terminal and enter some lines in a protected file, and the lines are different depending on which distro you use.... How fricking moronic!!!!!!!!

        Having to use the terminal and enter obscure lines in a protected file for something that SHOULD be just a checkbox is not "working differently".

      >all this for fricking mouse acceleration
      I understand the necessity of people making programs like this, that there needs to be one lunatic to sperg out over minute shit like this to better the world for everyone else by furthering the technology and understanding; but it doesn't change how fricking loud I sigh when I see it. Like, just do fricking anything else. Hurr hurr I know I'm posting on IQfy, but something about the "productivity" Black folk just infuriates me. JUST WORK. YOU DON'T NEED TO ADJUST YOUR FRICKING MOUSE ACCELERATION TO BE IN PERFECT FIBONACCI FOR EVERY FIVE PIXELS TRAVELED. OH NOW YOU'LL START YOUR FIRST LINE OF CODE, OH WAIT SORRY MY KEYBOARD IS IN QWERTY AND NOT DVORAK, ONE MOMENT PLEASE

        it's not for "productivity" it's for gaming so you can enjoy the benefits of slow sensitivity and fast sensitivity at the same time

          If you're playing games, you want to turn mouse acceleration off entirely.

            yes, if you're talking about exponential acceleration and not controllable, linear acceleration that you can tweak to your ideal with the above tool.
            it works very well. trust me, i'm a thousand times better at fps games than you are.

    You know for someone who claims to be "immune to propaganda" you sure are easily manipulated by basic reverse psychology.

    because very slow, low resolution mice suck for moving the cursor substantial distances

    it's for crappy mice

    here's a real, non-bait answer:

    Mouse Acceleration would make sense on small touchpads. one example: sometime you want to highlight on some long text or dragging a huge selection bounding box, if your initial click-drag on the touchpad doesnt get far enough to highlight the whole thing, you can just pull back your drag slowly, then push forward again quickly so you're now further than where you were before. without acceleration, this manoever will only put your cursor in the same spot repeatably so your only fix is to cancel the drag and increase your touchpad sensitivity for the occasion. but then what if you need fine cursor control later? checkmate, chuds.

    ChromeOS have this neat feature where Touchpad Acceleration is separate from USB Mouse Acceleration. i have them on and off respectively.

    Are you one of those hyperactive homosexuals who has their mouse setup so the cursor moves 1.5 screens if you move the mouse 1 mm?

    It allows you to move your mouse pointer from one end of the screen to the other without either having to drag your mouse across half the table or having a twitchy ass mouse pointer.
