When trying to click links on Linux, it's not uncommon for the cursor to slide barely off the link when thumb attempts to tap. Why?
Orient thumb sideways, slowly drag left across touchpad
Linux: moves over ~3% of screen
Drag same sideways thumb back to the right, about 2x speed, afterwards
Linux: darts back right further than the original left movement
Place finger halfway between being on touchpad and outside of it, then drag inward
macOS: cursor begins movement after finger is fully within touchpad area
Linux: cursor never begins moving
