    I heard there's an option in Universal Access to limit the mouse's maximum cursor speed.

    Does that apply to games as well ? Anyone try ?

    Maybe messing up with that slider might enable a more linear and windows-like mouse acceleration.

    OS X's mouse acceleration is known to be really jumpy and annoying. I got used to it for desktop and strategy games (still a bit annoying) but for FPS games they're just unplayable.

    After trying Lion DP2, I'm definitely liking the mouse movement better than Snow Leopard (using my Magic Mouse). The response seems more linear, which is a major improvement over the crap SL acceleration curve.

    The maximum pointer speed has also been raised, compared to SL.

    That's good news. Thanks.

    Did you try it in games ?
