I'll wait to see if anyone responds with "Sure, it has one, or you can use any terminal with it, here's how you get it to work, get it into the menu/icon/illume thing, make it use the keyboard, blah blah blah".

If I can avoid annoying the devs with unnecessary bug reports, I will.

Hey, I noticed that someone just added a Full-QWERTY configuration to the ASU keyboard, and a little icon for choosing which keyboard layout to use on the fly. Bravo!! Very glad to see that.
