My old wireless keyboard and mouse setup works all right, but since I will be building another PC around an older motherboard, I figured going with good old PS/2. Both PCs have PS/2 and the OS that's going on the older PC might not support USB HIDs, it makes sense that I go PS/2 and not worry about drivers.
I got spoiled when listening to MIDIs on Yamaha XG hardware. When I moved to Win7 the softsynth drivers would not install. So, I remembered Win7 has the ability to install WinXP mode. That got me thinking, if I install the softsynth drivers in XP mode, and XP mode programs show themselves to Win7. Could I open my MIDI collection in 7 and send them to XP mode? How about, YES. I finally have my XG sounds under 7 and I am happy!
