Yes, I do know how to do the touchscreen thing, but that's a waste of time when I'm typing. It's also inconvenient to have to remove my hand from the keyboard and reach out at arm's length to touch the screen.
And besides, if they're going to have support for USB keyboards, then it's going to have to be full support (or none at all). Anything in between is a bug.
P.S. They don't have to provide support for Windows keystrokes. I'll settle for Linux, Unix, or Mac keystrokes. Or you can tell me where to find the ones for Android and I'll learn those as well.
