I have one. I am running Intrepid with the netbook remix. I will give it a try when I get home.

Paired up using the GUI bluetooth applet in the menu bar with absolutely no problem. Just like on my Macs.

That is great news! I tried with the applet on an older, large, white, Apple BT keyboard and no go. I want to use the small aluminum one on my work desk as it is lower and easier on my wrists. My desk's height is not keyboarding friendly.

Thank you for trying this out and I'm on my way to the Apple Store this weekend then.
