Just curious...does OS X support ADB yet? I'm having serious issues with my G4 optical mouse-the few times that it does work it crashes X and sends me messages from the Kernel (BTW, I have a Blue & White G3 Tower running a 300 MHz chip). I could replace the mouse, but I would love to run my PC mouse & Keybord through my Belkin switch with ADB cables.

If anyone knows if OS X supports ADB can they let me know? Thanx in advance...

I don't know of any direct support yet. You can work around the problem by using iMate USB -&gt; ADB adapter and the OSX driver. Look here.

There's time enough, but none to spare.

Hey, Qhris. Thanx for responding...

Don't ask me how, but I hooked my PC mouse in keybord thru my Belkin 4 port switch. Everything works!!! OS X sees the stuff hooked up thru the ADB!

I'm expecting a problem (like a signal from the BSD kernel), but until then, no probs!
