I was doing software tech support in the early '80s when the first Mac
came out and popularized the electronic rodents, and although there was
initial flux ('mice' because it's regular, 'mouses' because 'mice' is
taken for living rodents already), but I'm pretty sure when the dust
settled, 'mice' won.

I've had two patrons stump me recently with this question: What is the
correct plural term for the mouse that is used with a computer? The
people I've polled seem to be equally divided between mice and mouses.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
