Default Xbox controller on vista

I know you can use an Xbox controller on Vista but will it work with other games to like halo on vista?

Can you use it instead of a mouse? Because that would be pretty sick.

Yeah. There's a huge discrepancy in Halo 2 PC over letting players online use the gamepad because when using the gamepad, it automatically gives you a slight "lock-on" advantage, and that doesn't happen with mouse and keyboard.
