1 out of 5 eggs Okay for Windows, terrible for GNU/Linux 12/09/2013

This review is from: AGPtek PC000006 LED Illuminated Ergonomic USB Wired Multimedia Blue Backlit Gaming Keyboard for PC Laptop

Pros: Backlight looks even, keys have okay travel, function keys work fine in Windows (the anti-window key feature is great), and backlighting can be easily switched from glowing to steady to off. All the features require zero software!

Cons: Both Alt keys and Ctrl keys register as Shift keystrokes in GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 12.04, 32bit). As this is marketed as a "Gaming" style keyboard, not having Alt and Ctrl keys for GNU/Linux makes this keyboard pretty useless.

Other Thoughts: I'll be RMAing this as soon as I get a chance. Very disappointed that such basic GNU/Linux functionality was so terrible. Forget the function keys, at least ensure the basic keys work!
