I use it and I don't have any problems at all. My keyboard plugs into
PS/2 so each and every OS will detect it as a PS/2 device. The fact that
the actual communication between keyboard/mouse is via IR and not via
physical cable is transparent for the OS.
As the matter of fact, I am going to teach my remove some
keystrokes .... if I find time :)
Note that my keyboard is some cheapo combo which is very hard to get :)
It's not one of those fancy ones you can buy nowadays....
