For a while i had the OEM MS wheely mouse. It used the IMPS/2 mouse
protocol and the wheel worked and everything.... excellent quake3 tool
:). Unfortunately, it died for no apparent reason an I have been using
a $5 serial mouse. But I've been having a look at some of the new MS
mice and they look awesome. The only reason I'd buy one of these and not
the el-cheapo MS wheely is the extra side buttons. I am fairly sure the
wheel would work using the imps/2 mouse protocol in X. But what i need
to know is if the extra side buttons work.
So if you have either the "Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer" or the
"Microsoft Intellimouse Web" and can confirm side-button
finctionality.... it will be much appreciated. (the explorer is the
fully expensive optical one)
Thanks in advance
