I love mc, and as with Alexander it is one of the first things I install wherever I can. It is great to have it on the iliad. It looks great! I don't have an external keyboard (yet).
One thing I noticed is that when clicking on (for example) the F2 key or the menu at the top I sometimes have to activate the builtin keybaord to get that key press to register or the screen to refresh. I'm not sure if this is a typeahead issue, or something that could be tweaked. I must say I am impressed with this.
Ah, it seems I'm not allowe to give you more karma just yet. You'll have to ease up on the clever stuff for a while
