Logitect does not ship the "Unify" setup for Linux, but I have a Linux version that is in the "public domain". So getting the divices to "pair" under Linux is a solved problem.
Now that sounds interesting, I hadn't considered that option. The Logitech keyboards are a bit long in the tooth but I guess that shouldn't really matter.
