    Re: does this mouse is a good buy for linux?

    I have no idea, but I can say this: I have yet to come across a wireless keyboard or mouse that did not work.

    There are somw gaming keyboards and mice that I have heard about problems getting all of the extras to work, but plain old mice and keyboards usually just work.

    Typically the more "generic" they are the better.

    Only a handful of mice from a couple of brands have issues without some specific driver and/or some additional non-standard functions/button may not work out of the box.

    It should work, but it has only one rating. The others on that page should work also, most seem better for price and have more ratings to go by.

    I have only Logitech wireless hardware on four different machines. They all work flawlessly as long as you keep the batteries charged.

    It should I'd think. The problem with mice and linux start when there multiple buttons that require specific software to program those extra buttons. I don't think any manufacturer provides software to program mouse buttons for Linux. I have seen software available for Linux to program or reprogram mouse buttons but it was not simple to use.
