I'm using a PS/2 mouse with Debian and
works very well.
+1 Moreover, it has a ball not a light. I dread the day it dies!!
Mine also have such "dinosaurian" piece of hardware ball... and I'll
say more, it's manufactured from Microsoft (IntelliMouse 1.3A) O:-)
whirl. USB wireless* mouse with sealed bottom and moves cursor if you
hold it properly. I do have a roller ball Logitech mouse on another
machine. It wouldn't take a second if had to change it with an optical
or more recently a laser mouse.
I still see some disadvantages for laser or BlueTrack based mice:
1/ They do not work on crystal or clear surfaces
2/ I find batteries (even rechargable) a PITA :-)
3/ There are also some security concerns in using wireless for input
devices but nowadays I think the data flow between sender and receiver
units can be encrypted
For sporadic usage or to use with notebooks/netbooks/ipods/ipads/tables,
they can be nice and convenient.
For intensive usage, heck... leave me with my Cherry corded keyboard with
a weight of ~1,8 kg and its characteristic "clack, clack" sound ;-)
