I am not an m$ fanboi, but i used their mouse - a It's really cheap in my area, and I kinda thought i might be a replica or sth, but i think the low price is because it is not wireless, which I do not need anyway.
eh i meant to type keyboard, instead of mouse. I own an m$ mouse - Microsoft intellimouse optical mouse 3.0 (not 'bad' model for gamers - 4!) as well as a glass black Icemat classic mouse pad. (it came as a bundle and it was kinda expensive. bought in 2006), with the Comfort Curve Keyboard (old revision). I once had to 'repair' the mouse though, but I found instructions on the net on it's weak point! So saved a couple of bucks he he. In the beginning i thought i would break the glass icemat mouse-pad, but it turned out to be very robust! So yeah I run mint linux mod @ work and microsoft windows 8 preview @ home, both places with m$ gear lol
