Oh, and somehow "consensus" will work? No, sorry, it will not. How about the basic FACT that today, such systems do not work, and are not supported by a wide range of packages we support today. Yes, some people are "lucky" in that their systems don't have those packages, but others are not. The simple "I use a bluetooth keyboard" is one such example. So it's not a "we know best", it's a "it will not properly work otherwise." It is strange to watch people somehow think that if they complain enough, or feel strongly enough, something is going to change here to make this basic fact go away. Now, to get back to what I said before, I'm done with this thread, it's going nowhere, and it seems I'm just making it worse, my apologies. For penance, I'll adopt the next abandoned package someone throws at me, any suggestions? greg k-h
