Comment 30 for bug 124440

Some people wonder why I sometimes say Ubuntu is half-finished. This and the sorry state of gpointing-device-settings is the best proof.

If there's no way to properly set/use mice and touchpads on many desktops/laptops, there's no way Ubuntu can gain more users. No amount of Unity improvements and shiny lenses and scopes will overcome a simple showstopper like this. Ever.
