Much more tiring than a mouse.
I have a Wacom serial (the USB are similar). it has a button on the pen
and is pressure sensitive tip and presure sensitive eraser end, no wires
it's best for a drawing package. Iv'e not used it on Linux, but I
believe there is Linux support. I'/ve had several non-Wacom inferior
It's more like a touch screen than a mouse as normally movement is
absolute rather than relative
