besides, Willie, a tiny bit of re-learning, an extra click or two, is well worth the effort. they'll have gotten used to the right clicks instead of right-drag long before you find an 'exact match'.
Interestingly enough, here at $dayjob, we have a program for 6th and 7th grade girls where they learn how to use the 3D rendering program 'blender' for designing models for 3D printing.  The laptops they use, all IBM/lenovo Thinkpads, are running a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu (the 3D printer software has Ubuntu packaging, but not RPM packaging, so it's what works).  The girls have no issues using the machines, other than getting used to a physical keyboard that doesn't understand the gestures that tablet and phone keyboards have these days.
