Yes, it was working also already in past versions.

Little mistake, I wanted to write I am NOT using that much on Windows.

Yes, at some point in past I got bugged by a inaccurate mouse resulting
in a little overreaction (purchasing the best mouse and mouse pad at
this time. :)).

Don't know. My fantasia about this is very limited.

But in fact my BIOS has no feature for USB to PS2 emulation. I think
this might be because there is still a PS2 port on my board. You said
once only in case there are no more real ps2 ports on a board the BIOS
may be forced to provide this feature - I haven't verified this, but it
sounds very logical and probabilistic.
