Switches for the buttons go bad, the rollers can corrode making for not so 
smooth movement and the rollers need cleaned. Opticals either work fine or 
they don't work at all (some early MS mice tended to die and had a recall).

Huh? I've got old ball mice I've been using for years; they don't wear out.
The wires do get flaky after a long period of use (at which point I stop
using them - easier to switch than to chop an inch off the wire - the issue
is where it goes into the mouse), and you do have to clean them regularly,
but other than that...
