    It works in Windows, but has no Apple-specific drivers to let you customize what the buttons do. No horiz. scrolling at all, and no squeeze function at all, if my memory serves. Vert. scroll and the main 3 mouse buttons do work--but no special customization/programmability.

    Other brands of mice, even on Mac, have drivers to let you assign key commands etc. This one doesn't--but it does let you assign some Mac-specific things like Exposé that Windows can't do.

    well it only makes sense for Switchers....

    why would Apple want to make a mouse that Wintel people can use?
    thats stupid, its meant for people who buy a new system or Mac Mini
    to get what they know in the PC world and some Apple extras,..not the other way around. If a Wintel was walking into a store for a Apple mouse, what the hell for? he can get some even better mice for his PC. Switch,...and you now have the best of both worlds. Dont blame Apple blame the bozo with the $499.95 Dell pc who is a wanna-be.
