- Hey Office, just follow me!! + Sure, sir. Yes, the right answer is following. The cursor is not lagging or something. It's just following you while you write or move. By following, Microsoft is flattering you. Because everyone likes to being followed by something/someone.
It is a right-handed world. It used to be that if you switched our right/left click buttons the arrow would point towards the right (opposite of the images cited). This supports that the arrow mimics a hand pointing while providing angular contrast. Without a reference, it is an extension of the desktop metaphor.
The angle, the cursor is inclined at gives a better feeling of pointing something. A cursor straight at 90 degree would not provide a good effect.It provides improved appearance on low resolution screens. Also the position calculation would become a lot easier when done from the top left corner of the pixel.
