Changed lines 7-9 from:
'''Acceleration''' is the factor to change speed by when the mouse is moved faster than a threshold speed. Values between 0 and 1 cause deceleration. A value of 1 disables acceleration. Some FPS gamers dislike acceleration because it decouples the 1:1 relationship of pixels to physical distance. However, acceleration can help greatly with very fine pointer movements, such as sniping or grabbing the edge of a window. Windows has a hard on/off acceleration switch labeled '''enhance pointer precision'''. Additional steps may be required to fully remove acceleration on Windows.

'''Acceleration Threshold''' is the speed past which the mouse must move to enable acceleration. Often the time interval is fixed and this value is a pixel count past which the pointer must move in that short interval.

In the context of OS settings, the following terms usually apply:

'''Sensitivity''', '''resolution''', or '''speed''' is the constant factor relating physical distance to pixels. This can be tuned to match the sensitivity of your mouse.
