Note that this is partly an experience (maybe even cultural) issue.
Given the same problem, I'd think "ah, mouse. Now that is an input device, so
I'd expect it to be in /devin/input. Hmm - lots of mouse0, mouse1, etc type
entries, and a "mice" entry. That'll probably be the one..."
I personally wouldn't think to look in /dev/mouse. And remember that we speak
(mostly) the same language. Maus?
I guess it is just a matter of what you know.
