I tested a lot of mice. And i didn't find a common characteristic between the working ones... i just saw that the cheapest and simpliest mouse weas working. (5€ chinese mouse)

The mouse needs to support legacy PS/2 protocols, so the older and more basic the mouse, the more chance of it working. Anything with extra buttons, programmable thingies, touch sensors or super-duper 5 trillion dpi gaming sensors isn't going to work. It supports 3 buttons and a scrollwheel, nothing more.

Is this the adapter needed if I want to use a mouse with FutureOS or SymbOS?
If so, please add me to the list as well.

Yes, it's a clone of my AMX Mouse adapter that I designed many moons ago: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/PS2Mouse
It will work with FutureOS, SymbOS, OCP and many other programs.

I don't find using mice with this adapter particularly usable, but due to it using the joystick protocol at least it's widely supported. The speed of the mouse pointer doesn't reflect the speed of your hand, and the only way to move quickly seems to be moving in diagonals rather than straight lines... I don't think it's the fault of the adapter, but rather the limitations of the joystick interface.
I believe something like the Symbiface II or Albireo interfaces will give the best mouse in SymbOS, although with limited support elsewhere.

Although it's my design, I tend to agree with you. However, there are two reasons for the issue which are pretty hard to get around. One is the fact that the mouse isn't proportional so the speed is constant. The other is the fact that we are used to moving across a screen with >1000 pixels and modern mice are designed with this in mind. Trying to accurately and smoothly move across a screen of just 320 pixels is incredibly difficult and requires slowing the mouse down below what the internal mouse hardware was designed to handle. There is code in the PIC that tries to resolve both of these issues, but I have found that the best results can be achieved by using the oldest mouse you can find with a real ball (not laser).
