In my new job, I spend a great deal of time designing internal systems.  I've come to realize that people generally fall into one of the three above categories if consistently given all choices.  What is your preference?  I am a total right-clicker!

I like using context menus (right clicking) when I'm in X (the Unix graphical user interface). Since I use Linux, a lot of the commands and applications I use are accessed from the text based command line prompt, so I spend about a third of my time at the console.

Hello MspSpud,


Right-clicking the menus is the fastest and easiest way of doing things.



Have the BEST Day!

for me menu is best, then  rightclicking ....when i am comfy with an icon i use it. personally i find most icons bizarre/cryptic thus they irk me - except the obvious ones. years ago , the very concept of icons insulted my intelligence but nowadays i view icons as fast, good things  - except the cryptic ones LOL

I like the right-click.  Although, I have become quite fond of keyboard shortcuts as well - as long as they are only 1 or 2 characters.

Ah, crap...  keyboard shortcuts.  I should have included that in the survey.  I always forget about those pesky things  :)
