    Which do you prefer, "natural" scrolling, or "normal" scrolling?

    Took me a day and a half but now it's so very natural. Odd at first though.

    Normal. "Natural" only feels natural when I'm directly touching the screen and manipulating the window contents with my finger, not when I'm using a trackpad.

    What i think would be cool is if you have natural scrolling and then you go over and mouse over it and can drag it with your mouse, do you kinda get what im saying?

    Probably because there is already a thread on the subject, it just wasn't done as a poll as you did.

    With Mouse scroll normal... but with trackpad natural.

    Pity no option to use both at the same time (guess, scroll wheel is not something Apple cares about,... the bastards :) )



    Having said that... every now and then, on either setting, I stop and ask myself: Guess, which way it'll go now? :)

    Ditto, it's annoying that the options aren't truly separate as I use both on the same computer and don't feel like constantly changing the setting.

    I wasn't super enthusiastic at first, but after not even 24 hours, I'm surprised to find myself not only used to natural scrolling, but even liking it!

    It actually makes more sense to scroll that way, when you think about it.

    I love natural scrolling for navigating between spaces/fullscreen apps/etc. I don't care much for it for actual scrolling though. Because of the amount of people praising it here, I shall give it another day or two and see if I can adjust to it :)

    It would be "natural" if my computer was touchscreen like the iPad but, alas, it's not and the trackpad and the screen are not connected and are even somewhat disjointed. Thus it is very unnatural to assume it should work the same way as if you are using an iPad or real paper. That's why I stick with normal scrolling.
