I just tried it on 64-bit Ubuntu with composite rendering. It looks 
sleek and integrated, and it responds nicely. Well done.

I also sent bug reports. :D The one that's killing me is the Delete key 
not working. Is there something I can do now to make it work? I don't 
want to have to wait until after you're done with Windows before I give 
gr2 some serious testing.

Thanks! Again, it looks and feels great.
