Hi there, looks like this stuff is just in time for the project I'm working
A couple of problems so far though. Seems that when the Ctrl key is down the
codes come back
As the ascii (Ctrl+a = 1) rather than the character "a" (along with the Ctrl
key flag). Additionally, mouse-wheel
activity comes back as ascii value 0. Here's a quick fix, though I expect
some of this should be handled in the

Oh, and it would be nice if the VM version was reported correctly so that
checks can be made in-image as to
whether the Unicode interpreters/converters should be used.
Glad Unicode input is being addressed, however, keep it up!

Hi Folks -
Thanks to some dedicated OLPC-related work done in Greece by Chris
Petsos, we now have a Windows VM with Unicode support enabled. This
VM will both generate UTF input from characters as well as support
clipboard, file and directory names in UTF-8. The VM is available here:
You are invited to test the new work but be advised that this may
require some manual adjustments - for an understanding what needs to be
done, please see .
I'm interested in reports, both good and bad about whether the
clipboard, file, directory and input support behaves as expected.
