Workbench is one of the rare GUIs that allows its users to draw their own mouse cursors. The colour scheme for the pointer is independent of that of the GUI itself.

It is worth mentioning here that Acorn computers use three-button mice in where each button can be equally important. For example, the middle one invokes a context-sensitive pop-up menu (there are no pull-down menus in the GUI).
