Wow, I'm itching to do this!

I know there are ADB to USB adaptors out there.  Would this actually work to make a Mac ADB Intuos run on a PC?  Would the drivers be a problem?  Maybe someone has done it?

I can't tell you for sure because i don't have any experience with Apple computers, but i can't see why there should be a problem. The ADB connection has to transmit the same data to make the tablet work. And most USB drivers are designed to work with older hardware which is connected via a USB adapter.

There's the question of providing power to the tablet as well. Does ADB provide voltage?

Nope it doesn't work.. Even if you try to find a ADB to USB converter, you'll need 3rd party tablet drivers to supprt the ADB to USB which I didn't find..
