Ok, I got it. Thought you 'only' planed to improve your existing 
cutemouse development.

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.

The really used ones is just two button and one wheel. Fine enough for 
me anyway.

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.
