I can't even boot my Linux machine with the zboard attached.. Please post if you find something.. Since I don't use Windows at home anymore the zboard is nothing but a big paperweight

I signed up to the Zboard forums, I found a couple of threads with Linux in the title, but there didn't appear to be anything of importance.

2017 update

For a few bucks, I just bought a used ZBoard which was sitting on a shelf at a local Salvation Army store. Just the plain KB: no gaming layout; no wrist pad.

Much of the functionality of a normal multimedia KB was available when I simply plugging it into a USB slot on a kernel 4.x laptop. The built-in laptop KB continues to work as well. And plugging a low data-rate dongle into one of the built-in USB 1.1 slots works just fine: freeing up a more valuable slot on the machine.

The long cable will be useful too. Hope to make use of more function key functionality later.

I don't believe the company is in the keyboard business anymore.
