Ignorant questions regarding Macs

Absolutely!  I am using one on a Mac right now.

The Classic Mac OS (OS 7/8/9) requires special drivers to be supplied 
by the hardware (mouse) manufacturer, but OS X supports this natively.

In fact, the mouse I am using right now (a Labtec brand USB optical 
mouse with two buttons plus a scroll wheel, which also serves as a 
middle button) was packaged for Windows only.  "Requirements: Windows 
..." -- I bought it anyway, plugged it in, and it just works.

The scroll wheel scrolls, the right button brings up context menus, 
etc...  no problem.

And yes, it works with Rev too.
