The problems occur when the users don't understand the differences between a ball mouse and an optical mouse. Perfmance is based on the communication abilities of the mouse. A good optical mouse can easily overload a PS/2 port's bandwidth, as well as nix a slow/crappy machine.
If you enable certain functions and using a logitech mouse, PS2 will outpeform USB by around a 70% rate.
With windows ME, for USB it isnt plug it in and work, it requires work to get any USB thing working.
