I find it's much easier to effectively "rock" the taskbar with the classic white pointer, OP.

I switched to it on my work computer because I have to work with a bunch of documents that are unadjustably-white. Makes me feel like a fancy mac boy

in the 90s there was this little desktop app where you'd enter your monitor size and it would figure out how far you've moved your cursor based on the screen resolution, and it had a bunch of distance milestones. it was fun.

that sounds fun, now i'm thinking about all sorts of operating systems achievements (1000 folders created)

also wasn't mr macintosh something like that? he would pop up after opening a menu some number of times?

the default black cursor has too long of a tail, so i used the custom color picker and set that to black

still not as good as the mac one but i guess ill see how much i hate it
