Tp uses two mice... now if only they would make a split mouse.

Tp really does use 2 Mice..  sometimes 3 Mice..

not simultaneously, but there is always at least 2 mice connected

I'm right handed and use the mouse with the left hand.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I switched to left-hand mousing many years ago, and definitely still prefer that layout (although with trackball now). I felt that the position was more ergonomic and faster, as it was significantly closer to home row position of my left hand (using full size keyboard with number keys on right). I have never switched the "mouse" button layout, left click is still on the left but performed with ring or little finger, right click always with thumb. Current trackball is Logitech Trackman Marble, I've used in for over 10 years. At its best, the action is very good but it is finicky (mostly due to buildup of varieties of finger grime). Requires regular maintenance, ball and the ball glides get gummed up (and never touch the thing with a sticky finger or response becomes awful). Also, the Marble has no scroll wheel. Looking for better trackball, but a little shocked by the comparative price of something like the CST2545-5W (L-Trac) which is about a hundred and ten dollars more than a Trackman Marble:

However, am still considering an upgrade. I'm curious about the Hand-Trak device, but can find no reviews. Probably way more than you wanted to know, and wandering somewhat off topic.

Ambidextrous person here.  MX-518 mouse on the right, vertical scroll wheel and back/forward browser buttons on the left. I find myself unconsciously using a combination a both left and right without even thinking about it.

I have tried using a mouse with my left hand, but due to that little bump on my middle finger there's no comfortable way to hold it. I only use my left hand for using a thumbstick or doing typing work which it has a huge difference if i type with once hand since my left hand is weaker.
So i am mainly right handed, so no.
