        Hey thanks, it's actually amazing that you can plug in any variable resistance for certain buttons. The magic is on the back side!

          yup, they are also pretty neat for making your own designs and modding, if you want say a specific peripheral to do something you can whip it up rq and plug it in (within reason of course), it can be really nice for prototyping, so as a dev board its worthwhile too

            So, it's not being worked on by Microsoft themselves.

            Where's the LOVE, Microsoft?

              Love is not as simple thing, as it might be look like.

              Maybe it's time for Linux to show love to Microsoft

                Microsoft doesn't truly love Linux.

                Microsoft loves Linux so Linux can open up and become weak. Then Microsoft will punch at the core and severely damage Linux in one hit.
                Then we will have one and only one choice: Microsoft Linux.

                  Yep. I've been in rehab for 7 months as a paraplegic and I've seen quite a few quadriplegics using them either as control devices for stuff like CAD and office apps as well as game controllers. They're really versatile and highly customizable, and if you have access to 3D printers and some additional coding you open up yet another level of accessibility.
