Pick one. Any one.
Linux neither supports nor fails to support mice. If it plugs in and
acts like a mouse, it will almost certainly work. Period. The
protocol is long well-established.
There is a huge myth about this hardware support kind of thing when it
comes to the most primitive, critical devices around - keyboards and
mice. They haven't changed all that much over the years, unless you
are looking for some exotic language support - for a keyboard. Mice
don't do languages.
The only "support" you generally need is for the flashy gadgets that
come with the keyboards and/or mice and only work on Windows or Macs
(because who the heck uses Linux anyway but geeks?).
But, you did ask for a suggestion - Logitech. They claim they don't
support Linux at all, but their hardware works nicely with it.
