Review of Linux Compatibility

The Logitech M500 is a wired laser mouse with USB ID 046d:c069:

Bus 006 Device 003: ID 046d:c069 Logitech, Inc. M500 Laser Mouse

The mouse is automatically recognized and fully supported under Linux:

usb 6-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c069
usb 6-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 6-1: Product: USB Laser Mouse
usb 6-1: Manufacturer: Logitech

generic-usb 0003:046D:C069.0005: input,hidraw4: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Laser Mouse] on usb-0000:00:12.1-1/input0
usbcore: registered new interface driver usbhid

Independent of the Linux support of the mouse several users made the experience that the precision of the mouse is lower than what one would expect from a laser mouse.
