I experienced issues with an input driver, with a laptop energy saving
tool and others might have experienced a few software issues too, but
those happen very seldom. Assumed somebody describes a software issue,
then most likely somebody else would confirm this issue.

I can't remember that I ever had a debouncing issue with my slooooooow
Atari ST mouse, but I very seldom had a PC mouse that worked without
issues. Nobody wants to buy a new mouse every week.

Software debouncing isn't an issue, if the mouse doesn't need to be
super-fast, I'm not talking about moving the mouse pointer, but if there
never would be the need for double clicks, or double clicks are
expected to be done very slow, software could do hardcore debouncing.

I'm, not using it with Arch and don't know if it's provided by Ubuntu
repositories. However, IMO it's usually a broken mouse, resp. software
that expects perfectly working mice, while most mice are not working
perfectly.

Again, I agree that coders should care about real hardware. We
shouldn't produce mountains of mice trash, but de facto the issue
usually starts with the mice that aren't that perfect as expected.
