    You guys have some interesting points. I know someone with an old
    machine and they got a USB Mouse 4 months or so ago and have had
    nothing but trouble with it. Perhaps you are right about the USB
    drivers being crap, but I generally do believe that PS2 Mice are a lot
    better than USB. Wouldn't a USB mouse take up more resources anyway?
    If the computer was brand new I don't doubt it would work, but I still
    think PS2 is the best connection for this type of device.

    The USB port is already using the resources it is assigned, mouse, or no
    mouse, unless you completely disable the ports. No different than having a
    PS2 port active, and not using it. If you have an old machine, I would also
    recommend PS2 over USB. But for newer hardware I see no disadvantage in
    using USB. Eventually, PS2 will be gone anyway.
