That was really helpful, thanks!
So far I'm getting pretty used to it. I use BetterTouchTool so I never have to deal with the loud force click - tiptap left/right open in for new tab/refresh, two-finger tap for right click, and for dragging I use the three-finger drag from the accessibility settings. Other than the loud clicking noise, this touchpad is the first one I'm enjoying. I still occasionally use my trackball mouse, but it's getting less and less.
I'm really liking the terminal, I only used Putty before and hated it.
