Come to think of it, no. I tried using a USB keyboard in 4.11 and  
although I got a message on console to the effect of it seeing the  
keyboard I had just added, I was not able to log in until I swapped  
to a PS2 one.

I think I'm going to just load a WinServer image on it long enough to  
see what errors pop up in that realm and try to gather a more  
extensive list of behaviours.

Thanks for answering, 'till later..
