yes, i believe they are actuall PnP compatible on a pc. don't quote me on that and i don't have any direct sources on it either it's just something in the back of my brain that i think is true.

I'd assume it's the same for mice since they're USB. If they're not pnp I'm certain some one's written a custom driver for them by now.

Well, at work we have issues with Mac mice running on Windows properly. If there are drivers out there I do not know about them.
