    Yes, it comes with drivers for XP. (I'm using one right now on my XP box at work.)

    Not all the functions will work. It's detected as a standard mouse, no specific drivers ship with the MM as far as I'm aware.

    I've used my MM with my old windows laptop. You get left click, right click and scroll up/down. Don't know if you can assign the other buttons. (that was in XP)

    Kind of the opposite of what you asked but the mouse for my office PC acts like a mighty mouse when its plugged into my Powerbook laptop.

    Oops! You're right. I must have been thinking of something else.

    Quite a few on eBay, highest around $40.
