Absolutely!!  I use the Logitech Marble Mouse with a left and right button 
AND a left and right scroll button.  I needed to install the Logitech 
Control Center software to adjust tracking speed, etc.  But it works 
great.

To emulate the right-click, that should be the "control key" plus mouse 
click for one-button mice or laptops.

MacOSX will support just about any standard multi-button mouse.  To get 
all the bells and whistles, you may have to install the software that 
comes with the mouse.

I am on a windows system, so I am not too familiar with Macs. (Last one
I worked on was a Mac SE)

My question is this - is there a way to use a multi-button mouse and/or
a mouse wheel on a Mac? I find both right-clicking and using the mouse
wheel very convenient. The Rev docs always talk about holding down the
option button while using the mouse button to simulate a right-click on
a Mac. But, if you plugged a multi-button mouse into a Mac, would there
be a way to use the right button or the mouse wheel?
