Compatability with Microsoft bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo

Hi, I have a mircosoft bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo on one of the workstations i manage and i was thinking about changing the workstation to Gentoo like my other machines. I was wondering if the mircosoft bluetooth keyboard & mouse would or could be made to work in a linux envioment.

If anyone could offer me any advice on this matter i would really apricate it

Thanks in advance,
Regards Ben

i have the same question, just that would it work with fedora? and if so, would it still give me battery warnings like it does in wondows? also, this keyboard has many function keys which i've grown to love, i read a fuction key fix for natural keyboards, would it be the same fix for this keyboard?

Thanks, Kaz
