Single Click to Launch freaks?

Hmmmmm, I've been resisting for a long time but index finger fatigue is making me hate double-clicking constantly. I'm trying Use Checkboxes to Select and Single Click to Launch settings.

It remains to be seen how long I'll stay with it. So far so good.

Whatever the default is...I mean, since some launches now are in single click, i do not mind double click!

PS: I've got a very sensitive mice at 1600dpi and helps a lot!

Single click every time. It's one of the first things I do when completing a new installation.

That's interesting. I think I resisted single click because when I first started doing Linux the copy on select and single click stuff discombobulated me. I should have tried it again years ago. I noticed an article about it today so I tried it.

Next thing you know I'll be editing text with vim. There must be something in the water supply!!

vi(m) user here as well. While most seem to hate it, I like it because in Linux and such you can just count on it being there.

Launch Systray Apps with a Single Click?
I set folders/icons on my computer to open with a single click. It'd be nice to also be able to open systray apps with a single click. With the way systray icons behave in Windows 7, it feels intuitive to me to be able to launch them with a single-click. For example, I have Digsby and uTorrent...
