Yes. There are reports from others that the Microsoft 2.4GHz keyboard/mouse is problematic. I was only trying to inform others of the issues.

I have no tried a wireless dongle other than the 2.4GHz Microsoft keyboard and mouse. It doesn’t work correctly under any RPI image.
In addition, it does not work with any Linux distribution I’ve tried other than Fedora. The issue is that the keyboard driver appears to present repeating characters to the OS even when I am not pressing a key. So, the only way I can get them to work is with non-wireless keyboard and mouse. Unfortunately for me, my portable does not have a functional touchpad and the shift on the keyboard doesn’t work. So, I either have to use a direct connect keyboard or do the development and work on another computer. Ugh.

Excellent, thanks for the info, much appreciated.
After you got it going, how did it look compared to raspian wheezy distro?
Did you try to use a wifi dongle?
