In 2.49 and 2.5 the first thing I did to use Blender was to switch to 
turntable. It isn't perfect for sculpting an texturing, since you loose 
some kind of freedom, but otherwise i feel much more comfortable with 

But there is a second thing that i always change. I switch the preset 
for panning and rotation against each other in the viewport. You can pan 
everywhere while pressing the middle mouse button and drag. But inside 
the viewport it is rotation. *big eyes*

The reasons for me to do that:
* I pan much more often then i rotate the view.
* In isometric perspective (front, left, ...) this preset is rather 
annoying to me. Just miss to hold down the shift key and the view is 
gone. Especially with "auto perspective" enabled (i like it).
* It just feels natural to me, since most applications let you pan with 
the middle mouse button.

Why not make it the default?
