Being that it's a PS/2 keyboard it shouldn't have any compatibilty problems 
then a regular keyboard.

It's gonna have the same scancodes as a normal keyboard but you'll have 
additional rapid access keys which in linux could usually be handled by 
setkeycodes, loadkeys, setmetamode, getkeycodes(8), setkeycodes(8), 
dumpkeys(1), loadkeys(1), setmetamode(1).

Then the appropriate mapping would have to take place... I for one am 
intersted in purchasing one and actually using it. The whole idea that it's 
30 foot, and includes a mouse i a plus for me.
