Why aren`t such games defaulted to use the Shift-A-S-D and Spacebar for the movement keys? Inverted Mouse Look for the right hand of course. Isn`t that position the most comfortable for folks left hand to rest on?

W-A-S-D is good, but I like the default Tribes 2 setting better. It's E-S-D-F, so you have more room to work, and the shift key is still close enough. You also have a better reach to the number keys, if you're someone who uses those.
Apple? Macintosh? What are these strange words you speak?
I have played with joystick and keyboard/mouse...joysticks suck for FPS.
96.3 % of Statistics are made up.
A Panther XL works great in UT, and HL,Q2,Q3 for that matter. It'a a joystick trackball combo. Stick in the right hand for movement and weapons etc , trackball in left used to "look" and a few more buttons to play with. Sadly out of production but the PXL Pro is eagerly awaited.
Other than that alot of people use a joystick/trackball combo (separate pieces) a Saitek or CH F16 stick with a Kensington Expert Mouse Pro or cheapie Crystal Trackball seems to work well.
But to be honest it all comes down to what you find most comfortable.
