tablet users: pen mode or mouse mode?

as the title says, do you use the tablet in "pen mode" or "mouse mode"?

i use mouse mode at the moment, but most people seem to use it in pen mode - i am starting to wonder if i missing something.


EDIT: apparently newbies cannot post a poll. sorry

Pen Mode, FTW!

Seriously though, Pen Mode is the only mode I use. That way I can move around the canvas however I want without having to worry about running off the edge in the middle of a stroke.

Whats the point of using mouse mode for anything but the mouse?

Pen Mode

I use pen mode, as it is more akine to drawing for me. I also tend to jump around in my artwork and the pen mode allows for this a little easier.

Plus with my wacom Cintiq mouse mode would be a waste.

Almost always pen mode. Feels more natural.
