Now that is a bit eerie. That UI is almost identical to mine! I also have a Nostromo/Naga combo, and I nearly wrote in to Reader UI to showcase how I shaped my bars to echo my peripherals.

I'm in the same boat. My Nostromo setup looks very similar.I use the D-Pad for moving, forward/backward, strafe right/left and mouse for looking. The large thumb button I use as my PTT for Mumble and the red switch for jump. All together I don't really need the keyboard for anything, but still use shortcuts to open bags, etc. I actually use an even 12 buttons on the Nostromo with the far left row for Shift, CTRL, and ALT shifts (I use the Nostromo scrollwheel for click #12). It works very well once you get use to it, and if you map your buttons the same on your various classes (ie interrupt and other skills in the same spots) it is very easy to transition from one to another.I have a Naga as well, but biology gifted me with large size 11 hands and the whole mouse is a little small for me. I can only accurately use the top and bottom row of key on the side as the others are almost like using one of those calculator watches. Good mouse though.

I also use nostromo/razer combo. I have the razer buttons mapped to targeting functions, as well as some movements that can't be provided with just the mouse (strafe, jump, back up). I also have 3 razer buttons mapped to alt/shift/ctrl. My nostromo buttons are simply the number keys, f1 and f2. Then, I have macros for all my most used abilities, and keybound them through the Bartender interface. This allows me to have a single main action bar, plus 2 bars (hidden), for professions and other, less used, abilities. With 14 standard buttons on the nostromo, plus 3 modifiers at my thumb, plus 12 remaining buttons on the razer (including wheel button), I can bind 68 abilities and never touch the keyboard, except to type in chat. (ps- my ptt button for vent is mapped to the thumb button on the nostromo).Mat, to answer your question: 99% of my movement is done by holding both mouse buttons and using the mouse to turn. I use the arrow keys if I need to move and look in my bags at the same time, which is rare and usually only when flying. Like I said above, I have mapped certain movements and targeting functions to the razer. These include strafing left and right, jump, back-up, tab targeting, assist targeting, and tricks macros. I also have a spammable stealth macro on one button.The set up works really well for me. All abilities are easily reachable, and I can perform a lot of movement/action abilities simultaneously.
