Why What is the ideapurpose behind mouse acceleration?

I'll never understand this.

Windows XP enables it by default, I don't know about vista or 7, in Mac OS X you have to buy a shareware to remove both mouse acceleration AND accelerated scrolling.

Why are those things always accelerated and why isn't there an option, is there any science behind it, because it feels so unnatural, I don't understand how it can be the default behaviour.

I'm so angry about this it feels like a conspiracy to upset all computer users.
