Which is the best Bluetooth USB dongle for XP-SP2 (non Wid..

Dear friends:

Which is the best Bluetooth USB dongle for XP-SP2 (non Widcomm)
drivers?

I don't like Widcomm drivers, they install too many garbage (ports,
etc.) in my computer. I think that for simple usage (mostly PDA
synchronization) the simpler SP2 devices should be better.

The problem is to know which of today's dongles are natively
recognized by the SP2 drivers.

Any hint?
