lmao.  "CIA invented the word paranoid..."    quote of the day...   you are 
definitely libre thats for sure hahah.

So you mean it was enabled by default and shown with a picture in the manual,  
and it was a server board and it still didn't work.   I'll have to take your 
word for it, because I would assume most server boards would work fine.  I was 
referring to workstation boards and have had the opposite experience...

You troll me on the ps/2 thing alot.  I'm giving out the same advice I have 
learned from Qubes docs and their forum posts.  I think most users would 
disagree with you but maybe I'm wrong.  Next you are going to tell me this is 
not a forum but a mailing list lol...

at least your posts are entertaining.  most libre people are...
