I recently downloaded SideTrack for my PowerBook, since it's pre-fancy trackpads with dual-finger scrolling, to enable a "right-click" by tapping the trackpad as well as scrolling functions by dragging the right edge. Works great - which leads me to wonder, is there anything like this for Windows for people who occasionally would like to boot the other OS? (Since I am about to ditch the PBook for a new MacBook)

Just wondering. In the Windows world I can't really live without a right-click, and I'm hoping that there's a solution besides "bring a mouse everywhere".

And please, no "why would you want to boot Windows on a Mac" responses... I have my reasons.

There is a utility out there called AppleMouse and it allows you to use a Apple mouse or touchpad with one button like you do in OS X - Ctrl + Click will give you the same right click funcion.

There it is.

Cool. Sounds like a start - hopefully someone will come up with a way to not have to use a key, like the two-finger-on-the-trackpad click, or tapping the trackpad or something...
