It's the first thing I do, and always have, and would suspect you get a longer lifetime of your mouse.
Very good point.
Not good enough to get me to single click, but a very good point it is.
I never had a mouse die on me, well at least not to the extend that I couldn't repair it.
Usually they are replaced with a newer model long before they wear out.
It's not that I am dead against single click, or unwilling to try it.
When I had RSI, I used it for a few weeks, but I just didn't like it.
I spend a lot of time in the explorer, rearranging, moving, selecting and renaming files.
In that scenario single click leads too often to starting programs.
If I could limit the single click to the desktop only, I would probably use it.
The desktop is like a big taskbar, and single click absolutely makes sense there.
But in the explorer I found it to work against me more than it would help me.
Personal preference, that's all.
