I have one of the original Microsoft mice however it's BUS and not serial. No good on something like a Rainbow which has no ISA slots.
I know that with Microsoft's later InPort mice they were able to be used on BUS, PS/2, and serial through the use of a little tiny adapter and a short cable to the port of your flavor.
Assuming the little white box the InPort mouse used to plug into PS/2 or serial was juat a straight-through device with nothign in it, would the original Microsoft BUS mouse be able to run as a serial mouse with a similar adapter?
