Classic IntelliMouse? Pft, That is the classic.
I still have one of those around here (and it still works). That non-ambidextrous model came out a good bit later.
Meh. The mouse only works in modern >=7OS's.
A true classic would work in win95 if need be.
If you really want to, it will work fine in Windows 95. I don't know why you would want that, but it can be done. What I imagine you are thinking is USB wasn't supported until the second edition of Windows 98. The first edition could only enable it work the 'Gold' patch. If you worked tech support back when lots of people were still running 98, you might remember this as users tended to brick their install with it (usually a Winthough I never figured out exactly how).
Anyway, that all works fine on XP+, it doesn't require 7. Unless a joke is just flying over my head here.
I'm like the man who single-handedly built the rocket and went to the moon. What was his name? Apollo Creed?
