Another good and very useful article. Keep posting.

I consider that disabling mouse acceleration from Windows mouse settings is a must, but it is my personal preference. Maybe mouse acceleration were useful 30 years ago when mouses had a tracking ball, and mouse acceleration could mitigate the slow ball movement?
Nowadays mouses have infrared or laser sensors.

After building muscle memory for more than 20 years, I can't disable mouse acceleration on Windows, save for gaming.

Indeed, it could help some of the younger folks.
I was originally annoyed by this article but then I realized that I often find mouse acceleration on in games by default. If you aren't doing as well as you think it doesn't hurt to check your mouse settings
 
Set the pointer speed at the 6th notch and it will match 1:1 tracking, then you can set your sensitivity on your games
