Neither; it's increased productivity. When I'm typing with both hands,
but then need to transfer one hand to the mouse and spend several
seconds on aiming the pointer exactly where I need it, this is a larger
disruption. Especially when this switch has to be done quite often.

A mouse is an efficient tool, when I don't need the keyboard or resting
one hand there is sufficient, like for example for browsing, gaming or
others. But not for developing or writing in general.

It is also quite ok, when I'm only skimming through a theory and looking
at different things or try to understand a certain proof. Then it's ok
to point here and there.
