Windows-like mouse acceleration?
I've installed USB Overdrive in hopes of getting my wireless mouse to perform similar to how it is in Windows. What are some good settings I could use, or any tips to make it perform like Windows?

What is it that isn't working for you? I must admit that when I first switched off my BT mouse and tried using my trackpad, I was unsure what to do about stuff like moving the cursor across all 3000+ pixels of my two monitors. Then I found I could click with one finger, then use another finger to keep dragging. Nice. Then I found out about all the multi-finger gestures that just make sense and just work. I haven't turned on my bluetooth mouse more than a handful of times since getting my Macbook Pro. Well I turned it on tonight so I could make this screenshot for you because the mouse setup preferences pane is disabled when you don't have a mouse.
Try (slightly) tweaking tracking speed and scrolling speed and see if that gives you what you are looking for. If you have a newer MB with the trackpad, try switching off the mouse. I find that the only time I really need a mouse is for applications like photoshop. Perhaps this will work for you as well.
I never thought I'd recommend an Apple trackpad but now that I've used one on my MBP, I can wholeheartedly recommend one. If you have a desktop model like a Mac mini or iMac, pick up an Apple trackpad. There's no harm having a mouse around for occasional use but once you try using the trackpad, I wouldn't be surprised if you like it better than the mouse.
