    Does anyone know if microsoft will ever release a Serial version of their IntelliMouse Optical? Yes, it's sad, I only have a serial port, and nobody seems to make mice that are compatiable with it(they're all USB and/or PS/2).

    I'm not sure about this, but i think it'd be tehnologically impossible to make a Serial optical mouse. I don't thinik the Serial Port would be fast enough.

    Just remember, i could be wrong.

    Well, i guess you're right. I'm thinking that it's time to face the facts. If I ever want to see an optical mouse conected to my computer, I'll have to get a new motherboard (Maybe i can throw in a new processor too!). Oh well, it's back to the days of the ol' ball in a bucket. Damn serial ports!
