Rumor has it that Micheal E Cooper may have mentioned these words:

Try click-drag selecting and then *middle button* clicking on the terminal
window or XEdit.
If your mouse has only 2 buttons, try clicking *both* of them at the same
time - that's called "3-button-emulation".
If you're in a CLI (read: text only mode) make sure 'gpm' is running so you
have mouse access to the text screen, then the middle-button-click works in
lynx as well.

I would doubt that - I've used a M$ mouse on an iMac running Linux before -
worked just fine. ;-) Yes, I can be a blasphemous rascal at times... ;^>
