Well MS definately did make them! Trackballs will never be as popular as standard mice, MS or not. That said, many swear by them as they reduce hand movements, great for combatining RSI. On the other hand, many find them difficult to navigate with. It took me a bit of getting used to using a trackball, if Im honest.

It's a damn shame MS do not make them any more. It seems i'm not alone in this sentiment, see below:

I guess I'll keep using mine till it finally does wear out.
