    It really depends on what I'm doing, I use them both the same though to be honest.

    I'm a keyboard user as well.
    Especially when I play games, I use keyboard as much more than mouse if mouse is not necessary. :)

    For me, mostly keyboard. Yes, I do use the mouse (Apple Magic Mouse!), but I spend most of my time in a terminal (using iTerm 2). This is because I do all my PHP work ON A PRODUCTION SERVER (so members can see the changes as they're happening). True, I have my .vimrc set so vim uses the mouse, but mostly I just keyboard my way around the servers (including in vim).

    As for my Java projects, I use NetBeans which is mostly mousing until I get to the editor. I do all my Maven builds in the terminal, without NetBeans, so ...

    I still use the keyboard the most.

    Keyboard, I own a laptop and don't really need to splash out on the money for a mouse, after all the basic commands I need are all on the keyboard. Sometimes I don't even use the touchpad....

    I usually use both quite a lot, the point of a GUI is to use a mouse and a keyboard since you don't need to constantly type commands out and certain tasks are far simpler and quicker using the mouse.

    It depends on what I'm doing (and not necessarily games vs other things). I generally prefer to use the keyboard but I hate Alt-Tab! I'll use the mouse to go from application to application or even tab to tab within a browser but within a single page or application, I prefer the keyboard unless the application is inherently mouse oriented (such as PCStitch).

    How about that for a yes AND no answer? :lildevil:

    I try to use the keyboard as much as I can because it's faster than moving the mouse around the screen. :)

    I use mouse mostly, keyboard from time to time. But I'm trying to use keyboard more.

    I work primarily in shell, so keyboard in upwards of 90% of the time. I don't like for my hands to leave the keyboard at all if possible.

    Well it depends on your profession, if you are a designer or content writer then keyboard will be used more than mouse

    Well both, it’s hard to navigate when you use the only one. However, whenever I have my idle I’m practicing keyboard shortcuts. XD

    Mouse for a good amount of navigation, keyboard for operation. Simple, no? And in addition, I can't use my keyboard for graphic editing. At least, not without needless hassle. I do use a lot of keyboard shortcuts though.

    I'm trying to stay with keyboard as much as possible, but sometimes it is quicker to use mouse - ex: double click on some variable name and then paste it in few different places, it is quicker to achieve with mouse than with the keyboard.

    But it is a lot easier if you know shortcuts on the keyboard - working with computer is really quick then and you don't have to use mouse often.
