Default MS Input Devices

As much as we don't like Microsoft's software, why is it that we like Microsoft Input Devices, such as keyboards, mice, gamepads, etc?

I'll admit, they're cheap, easy to use, comfortable, but it's Microsoft. You guys are using their stuff, even though they're bad


I'm currently using a Logitech mouse and MS keyboard, only because of the hot keys.

I found the best mouse I could find. I bought it. It was a Microsoft mouse.

I found the best software I could find. I downloaded it for free. It was Linux.

Big deal.

It's funny that Microsoft makes such great mice, and equally good keyboards though.

MS mice and alright, but they aren't gaming mice. You want a Razer or a Logitech for that.

MS keyboards are really good, though.

Actually, my keyboard has lost it's touch. It doesn't feel new anymore, and my mouse feels like it weighs 1 gram. It's too light.

I might as well use the KB/mouse that came with my PC, they're Logitech, after all...
