    I don't understand why anybody wouldn't. It just comes...naturally ;)

    Except when you use a mouse. It feels weird to scroll the other way with a scroll wheel. I tried the natural scrolling on a MBA and it felt great and natural though.

    The only reason I ever use a mouse is playing Rage.

    Trackpads and other touch-surfaces will eventually phase out the mouse. They'll still exist for certain lame-o's that use archaic operating systems (you know which one I'm talking about) and for special purposes, such as gaming. Much like joysticks and trackballs, and trackball users are pretentious.

    I only use a track on my macbook pro when i am away from a mouse other than that i use a mouse as track and the gestures kill my wrist as i have carpal tunnel for me a mouse is a no brainer and also to me some of these gestures are stupid trying to get them to work with the way i have to try to get them to work.

    Plus the natural scrolling for me is whats been used for decades not the new way to scroll

    At first, I thought it was stupid and it indeed required some getting used to, but now I think it's amazing.

    :D

    I hated it at first, but I like it now. I now appreciate why they call it natural scrolling, really does feel like you are moving the screen with your fingers.

    I'm one of those weird people who think the natural scrolling is, well, unnatural. I have it disabled. I guess I'm too much of an old stick in the mud and go with the traditional scrolling :)

    Maybe one day I will try to get used to the newfangled way, until then it's old-school

    Since I mainly use a mouse, I flipped scrolling back to the old way, It's more natural for a mouse I think.

    Try scroll reverser. It can reverse only the mouse wheel so you can still naturally scrolling. I use it all the time

    After a short learning curve, where I didn't particularly care for natural scrolling, I have come to prefer it. I use it on the laptops and with a mouse on my MacPro.

    At first I didn't like whatsoever but decided to give it an honest effort. I have myself a week. Once the week was over I couldn't go back.

    Once you go natural...:D

    I am. Took maybe 2 days to re-train the muscle memory. Thankfully, I use a Mac at work too.

    Same.

    I use trackpad almost exclusively on my macs, so when i go to work and use a mouse wheel i don't have to unlearn (again)...

    I kept it from the beginning and love it. It really does feel more natural. I will say that I turned it off on our iMac at home with a mouse, because it doesn't make sense with a scroll wheel. On the trackpad, though, it's amazing.

    Well, I have been "scrolling down to scroll down" on a Website for over 14 years, it's hard to get used to the idea, that you have to do the opposite now I guess, maybe I'll try it sometime.

    Considering how short the learning curve was, I'd say it actually is more natural. The only interference is with other OSes and mouse scrolling.

    I'd use it but my wife doesn't like it. We share (she uses) my iMac. :rolleyes:

    I use it with my magic mouse. Wouldn't use it with a scroll wheel though. ;-)

    I'm fine with being a lame-o trackball user.

    Not me. I use three computers daily, both Windows and Mac drives on two of them. The old way is as "natural" as the new way.

    I've gotten so used to Natural scrolling, that I do it even with a mouse. When I am at work on a PC, I always start scrolling the "wrong" way and have to correct myself.
