Mouse moves slow, dosen't accelarate or move far.

http://askubuntu.com – It seems ubuntu does not support my mouse well. It dosen't matter how fast I move it, it just works how far I move it. This is really a critical issue when I try to click a link, or select something in a text, or click a little button etc. Or when I want to move it across the screen, I move it really fast but it moves like a turtle. Well, can anyone recommend me an application or setting that makes the cursor move faster or differently? (HowTos)
