One battery or two makes a difference

You can use one AA battery for a lighter mouse and a three-month battery life*; or use two AAs for a solid feel and six-month run time.** You can also use your own rechargeable batteries.

Ubuntu 12.04:

Intergalactic plugged in the receiver and all functions of the mouse work as described on the packaging. No Problems. TESTED AND WORKS perfectly with Ubuntu 12.04 and Gnome 3.4.1.

 

Windows 8:

You can see all the Windows 8 gestures here.

Seems like the only change is Official Ubuntu/Linux support.  The M600 acts exactly under Linux like how it does under Windows.

For Windows 8 gestures, just update the software for the M600.

@Villain

M600 I think is it's predecessor. The M600 was the one tested under Ubuntu 12.04 and the T620 works the same just improved and it also built to support Windows 8 gestures. The M600 does support Windows 8 gestures with Logitech 6.5 SetPoint software.

I am planning to buy this mouse, but other day saw this video:

 

 

 

So how much practical is this mouse for day to day work and little offline gaming?

That is absolutely true. It's fine for day to day work, but for gaming, forget about using this mouse.

 

Many games require you to switch between the left and right click quickly (e.g. scope + shoot in many FPS games), and that's simply not possible with this mouse.  Also mentioned in that video is the fact that you can't click both the right and left buttons at the same time, which may be required by some games as well.

Thanks for your input...so i guess touch mice are still bit gimmicky...i am passing on to these until someone figures out..
