well, it seems as if this thing is actually going to ship. there's a $200 
discount still on indiegogo, but i don't know for how long. here it is at 

it'll ship with debian stretch and xfce, which i plan to replace with tde.

the only "pointing device" it has is the touch screen, which means that 
i'll need to maximize the amount of stuff i can do with the keyboard. i 
vaguely remember, but never have used, a kde accessibility package that 
effectively used the arrow keys to replace the mouse. and because of the 
screen size, i especially want kicker to disappear when it's not in actual 
use, i'd like to be able to show/hide it with a key combination or some 

anybody know if this is something i could assign in the current TDE? or 
that maybe already exists?
