Mark, just another question, if you'll be so kind:
How will this setup be detected by Linux? I know that asking for a full software suite might be too much, but it would be nice if the device was visible to the OS
Thanks for the question, it gives me the opportunity to address any operating system questions.
The G940 was designed as a HID device for Windows operating systems including XP 32 & 64, Vista 32 & 64, and Windows 7 32 & 64.
We have no plans to support other operating systems at this time. We have not tested with Apple OS or Linux. As a HID device, it will probably be detected by Apple OS X.
This is a practical decision based on the user base, flight simulation software base, and the ability to deliver a high quality user experience on any OS platform.
