I have been very disappointed with the predictive input method. I have
no trouble using the "terminal" virtual keyboard with a plastic
stylus, the pointy top of a ball-point pen, or the point of a
sharpened wooden lead pencil. Note: I do have a protective cover over
the touch screen. I have been trying to figure out how to get the
choice to use the "terminal" virtual keyboard to no avail. The
instructions referred to above require a non-free (shareware) utility
to extract a file (rar archive???). Surely the FreeRunner can be kept
Free and Open.

Note to Christ van Wilegen: my default_profile contains one line:
E_PROFILE="-profile asu" with a couple of line-feeds.

I do hope we can have this choice. Cheerio!
