Microsoft IntelliPoint mouse driver out for OS X

Microsoft tonight released a new version of its IntelliPoint software -- drivers for the company's line of mice. For the first time, the IntelliPoint software works on Mac OS X. The new version, 2.1.0, is available for download from Microsoft's Web site.

The 2.2MB driver installs as a new System Preferences pane called "Microsoft Mouse." It supports the following mice, according to Microsoft:

  • IntelliMouse Explorer
  • IntelliMouse Optical
  • Wheel Mouse Optical
  • Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer
  • Optical Trackball
  • Trackball Explorer
  • The driver itself enables you to program global or application-specific settings for mouse tracking speed; button assignments; and how the scroll wheel functions. You can also disable IntelliPoint features for specifically selected applications too.

    System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.1.2 or higher, 15MB of hard disk space, and, obviously, a compatible Microsoft mouse.
