While on the topic of lefthandedness: in the animal kingdom, there is an even split between left and right side dominance, in humans, left side dominance happens in only 9% of the population. There seems to be no explanation...

On the other hand, four of the five designers of the original Macintosh computer were left-handed. What this proves is up to you. :-)


The central difference between human and "animal" (somewhat absurd as humans are animals) is the human use use language, and thus abstract thought.  Both are left brain(right hand) activities.  The dominance of the right hand may have been an evolutionary side-effect of the brain's language centers.

As for the right brain, it controls spacial perception.  Very appropriate for designers who wanted to create a non linear, icon based OS, as opposed to good old DOS.
