I think that you guys are overlooking the fact that to have those manufactured, it potentially costs more money to maintain inventory and "guess" which ones will sell as opposed to just updating the screen to display a different keyboard.

Sure, most of you want a hardware keyboard. Yet, one one arrives, it's trashed by one group or another if it doesn't fit into their concept of ideal.

Again, another reason to draw it to the screen. Most of you will not be happy with any keyboard no matter how standard the keys may/may not be or how well they attempt to satisfy their potential users.

I have made huge progress getting Linux to run on my tablet, now it finally boots past terminal text.

I used the GPD Pocket Ubuntu build.

The main problem I am having is that the touchscreen is not acting as a touchscreen, it acts instead as a touch pad and uses it cause the mouse curser to hover. I can't tap things on screen.

That's nice, but do you need to double post?

Never heard of it...
sounds sketchy to me...
possibly vaporware ...maybe even fogwear....
you ever hear of this pie-rah mscion?

And what is up with people coming here ...not expecting to have to read anymore???
we got people who don't know how to post threads...
we got people who don't know how to use a search button...
Now we got people who don't want to read???

Has our site been translated into "Feel-o-vision" or "Smell-o-rama" and nobody told me?

Someone please point me to the web-extension...
that so many seem to be using nowadays ...
that allows people to absorb the written word here by means other than their eyeballs...

See!
SEE!!!!

That is what I mean!

Where is the Feel-O-Vision extension!


Kabouik....

Nay...
I say NAY my good sir....

I know vaporware when I see it and avoid it at ALLLL
costs...

I believe in the vision of geniuseseseses...

I have funded such marvels in the past...
Just because their inspiration was so great that they outshone the sun and just didn't quite make it...
Doesn't make it vaporware...

Like the Flexy Paw
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...f=home_popular
I thought it a brilliant investment opportunity.
and I backed it..

Or
Clitter
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...&ref=discovery
pure mad inspiration ...
I put money behind this venture...
I think it should have taken off...
It was perfect since I was thinking of a Japanese business venture it could be utilized with ...
a combination of a automated cafe and bordello I was planning called "The Pimp-O-Mat"....

I believed in the Laser Razer

I believe in Tosteroid
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...oaste/comments

Gadzooks My good sir
Gadzooks I say!!!
and yet a third time dare I say!

I even believed in the dream of a humble man....
who only wanted to do a kickstarter to get more of the world to play Magic : The Gathering card game..
a travesty it never happened...

I know vaporware when I smell them!

and I am aghast my good sir!
aghast!
that you would suspect me of chicanery and underhanded sideways looking irony!
