The mouse is 40 years old today

It is amazing to think that the mouse has been around longer than I have, and what an impact its invention has had on the whole way that computers have evolved and the way that they work. Had the early visionaries not had this idea, what would have been the norm – would everything have been keyboard controlled, or would some other (and possibly better) way of controlling a computer been invented?
