    The overwhelming majority of humans are right-handed. So that's where the market is...right handed people. That's where the money is, selling to right-handed people.

    It's all about the money.

    capitalist racism, obviously.

    Similar to Verizons recent decision on yahoogroups: We noticed that only a minority uses archive, digests and attachents, so we pretend that you don't want to use them

    Because left handed people are not supposed to have scissors or mouses. THEY CAN’T BE TRUSTED.

      In some forms of software, the mouse can be changed to left-handed use.

    Actually you can alter a computer mouse for working left-handed. I am left-handed but I always use the mouse in the right-handed way (with my left hand), because when I first started using a computer I had no idea that it could be changed.

    Once I came across a cafe which had right-handed cups (yes, really!) - that did annoy me.

    Because most people are right handed. There are left-handed scissors and computer mice can be configured for right or left hand use.
