Faster mouse? Go to Easy Access and set the delay short and the max speed to high! it's workable :)

Edit: (there is a ROM file in it.. isn't that illegal??)

Update everyone, there is a new version that has touchpad support! :D
Now you can move the mouse easily around.

Edit: (there is a ROM file in it.. isn't that illegal??)
As far as I understand, this isn't illegal were it's hosted now.

Install Mini vMac on your computer, and migrate your disk to a bigger one (you can download empty disk images in the above link).

Is this just a gimmick?

There is no sarcasm or gimmick about it. Like TheNlightenedOne said, mini vmac is a Mac emulator. This IS a Mac OS to run on your nspire (not directly but from the documents screen).

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.

@Dapianokid, Stefan and I are brothers ^.^

I still need to work a bit on improving the speed, as that dropped slightly (although it's still very usable) when adding touchpad mouse control support.

Touchpad support's working pretty well, considering it's emulating a computer operating system. ;)
Never used one of the old macs before, so figuring it out as I go :P

it seems a lot slower with touchpad support.
