The book "Learning Red Hat Linux" states:
"While Windows lets you choose to perform most operations by using the keyboard or mouse, X was designed for use with a mouse. If your mouse isn't functioning, you'll find it quite challenging or even impossible to use most X programs. X allows you to perform only a few important functions via the keyboard:
"Switching video modes
"Using virtual consoles
"Abruptly terminating X"
I found the statement both in the 1999 and 2003 editions of the book, the latter in the cached Google copy.
Is this statement about limited X support for the keyboard correct?
