Is a Compaq wireless mouse only good with a Compaq computer?

My friend has the mouse and I really like it but I don't have a Compaq computer.

No, it will work with any USB port on a PC. Just plug it in and let your computer find the right driver to run it. Restart.

No, it is not just good for a Compaq computer, as long as you have the appropriate drivers, it should work with any computer that has a usb port.

No. Mice are universal, especially USB powered mice. Now certain features may have specific Compaq driver's associated with that specific computer. But other than that, if it's a basic mouse, it should be plug and play.

Typically only internal components are proprietary. External components, like mice, are able to be used on many systems. It's either PS/2 or USB and just will need the proper drivers.
