http://askubuntu.com – The Genius SlimStar 8000 has caught my eye for use with my new HTPC. However, I can't get an answer out of Google if it works with Ubuntu (or Linux for that matter). The reviews over at Amazon indicate that it works with Mac, so that is a good sign. Has anyone tried this keyboard successfully? Failing that, where else can I look? I really just want basic keyboard functionality, multimedia keys are a nice to have. (HowTos)
