The other issue isn't that there is a static design, but that it is
user selectable in some cases. I haven't changed it in a while, but I
remember a setting for click behaviour somewhere, either in Windows
itself or in applications.
Where this gets dicey is when people move between personal setups,
say on a laptop or home computer, that may be shared, and workplace
settings. I have often said the word 'personal' in PC is an important
concept to understand.
