Apple's new mouse. STILL only one button?!?!

OK, though I'm a PC user (by need more than choice) I have been a huge Apple/Mac fan since my first MacPlus in 1988. And while I agree with most design choices made by Apple I still do not get their insistence on a one-button mouse. This is one area in which I've never heard it well-explained by either Apple or the Mac community why this is so. When I read a while back that Apple were coming out with a new wireless mouse and keyboard I was certain that they'd finally address this, but the product details unveiled yesterday reveal no such new thinking on Apple's part. Oh well. At least the specs for the updated, now aluminum 15" PowerBook rock.
