If there is still any interest in these, I just picked one up, and its mostly working in windows 10. The mouse function works, the LCD reads my windows media player library, and plays music (But it sometimes stops playing after one track), and it works with my HD homerun inside of kodi. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the windows button to launch kodi, but I would say that seventy five percent of the remote works. Has anyone found anything better out there yet, or is this it.

I still have 3 of the remotes I was never able to use because the receivers never showed up on eBay again. Probably been sitting in my basement 8+ years.

I too mourned the Gyration and got the Dell working on my machine. However, I eventually ditched it in favor of this $20 remote.

While it's not as sophisticated as the Gyration, the adjustment process is very intuitive once you get used to it (basically just point past the edge of the screen). Provides about 90% of WMC commands and much more flexible - including a keyboard on the back.

The smartphone app I mentioned earlier provides 100% of WMC commands, macros, keyboard, gyro-mouse, touchpad-mouse, wifi control of other PC app, etc. essentially for free.

Worked fine in 2013, still did last time I used it (last year). It's free to try. I've moved on to Hippo Remote. It has a touchpad mouse but no gyro remote as far as I know. It has more remote capabilities than Mobile Mouse.

Finally picked up one of those YY993 receivers to get my M2010 remote working after 9yrs or so. Repurposed an old CD-ROM analog audio cable to mount it inside the computer case and plug it directly into a USB header.
The old Dell software still works fine on Windows 10 x64.
Don't know if it was mentioned earlier over the past decade, but these remotes also work with the Gyration GYR4101RF USB dongle. However, that dongle is probably impossible to find by itself because it only came with the GYR4101US Music Remote which is pretty rare to begin with.

Probably would have been cheaper to run Mobile Mouse or similar app on a $10 Android phone than to buy the YY993. For some reason, I still prefer to have real buttons on a remote.
