I don't know.
I was testing the thing in a windows virtual machine, with vmware
player, the other day, and Winodws was unable to do anything, although
it detected it. At some point, I noticed that the XFCE desktop thing
(the new one they proposed on factory) had grabbed it again. And
apparently VMware player also showed it... So I'm unsure what happened.

I found out why. Vmware player has a setting, active by default, to share bluetooth devices between host and guest. It is on the configuration of the usb port.
