    Reflex I would say A, but since I have installed some sneaking ass software that words "would you like to install XXXX.toolbar.killyourcomputer.virus?" I always read first.

    My natural instinct says A, but then the cerebelum portion of my brain says to go with B...What was the question?

    From a usability perspective, and because I have already encountered this with my system, the Submit button is always first (since we read from left to right) the preview and/or rest button is on the right or subsequent to the submit/ok buttons...

    If I remember my psychology class, most right handed people should choose A, and most left handed people should choose B, but I'm left handed and choose A... hmmmm... overthinking this?
