    Just the fact that there would be no mouse available in Safe-Mode should be enough to make any reasonable-thinking person from using a USB port for an input device.
    The recent mobo's I have worked with have had 'Enable USB Mouse' and 'Enable USB Keyboard' And that allows such devices to work in the BIOS. I assume they also are supported in Safe Mode.

    And why go to USB? Because USB is flexible enough, and so why not go to everything USB. USB Hubs are everywhere, case fronts, monitors, speakers, keyboards, etc. etc. I'm all for getting rid of proprietary connections.

    Wow. That is a bummer. Well I guess I won't be getting rid of my pile of ps2 / USB convertors any time soon then.

    Either way, I still use my mice in the USB port, because the newest of the opticals DO show improved performance/DPI when used as a USB device.

    Well, if you persist in using USB for primary input devices, I'd definitely reccomend keeping 2 of those adaptors.

    I don't think a whole pile is necessary though:geek:
