I am using one on my linux based XBMC HTPC. It works quite well and I too had to make alterations to the keyboard.xml file to get it to function the way I wanted. The reason I bought it (aside from the beauty of the remote) is because it shows up as a keyboard and does not need any lirc translations.

This let me exit out of xbmc with the remote and then type in "startx" to get it back running again (which was awesome and prevents me from getting out a keyboard to do the little stuff).

I bought another one recently which I plan to use upstairs using a raspberry pi running openelec.
