If you really are interested, why not just try it for two weeks or so. I bet if those who currently double click really did that, a great majority would find (probably to their surprise) that the perceived or preconceived disadvantages of single clicking simply do not exist and that it is simply easier and more efficient to single click. Of course this is just my opinion, no more or less valid than anyone else's, but the only way to really find out for oneself is to try it for a sufficient period of time to fully adapt and then decide for one's self.

Eh. I see your point with the idea, but it would drive me nuts.
I click too fast as it is!

Well than I think it's fair to say that you should know by now if Aero is for you or not.

(Btw, I should add that I didn't mean for this thread to generate so much controversy and I hope that no one takes it too seriously.)

I've never tried single click for any length of time. I'm used to double.
