OSx Lion reverse scroll wheel direction

I’m a mac-o-phile, and a late arrival. Lion on the MacBook Air? Awesome!

On my iMac? HATE that they decided my scroll wheel needed to change directions so my hand motions mimic those of the touchpad. Even though I’ve used a scroll wheel for about a decade, and have to use one on PC’s, so don’t need the cognitive dissonance. And I’m old and dislike fundamental change.

Here’s how to get back to reality:

“System preferences”  -> “Mouse” -> see the pic:

And, normalcy is restored. Life is back to normal. The horizon is righted.

(Hat Tip to Nick Genes, who turned his back on Jobs just to tell me about this).
