Anyone use this?

I know it wont win any beauty contests but for its functionality alone it wins points with me.
I am currently using a Playstation 3 for bluerays / upnp - and in the midst of setting up a boxee dual boot Ubuntu 9.10 / windows 7 set-top. (with no blueray drive)
I need to know this remote is a viable solution for controlling boxee in windows and Ubuntu via Bluetooth or via an inexpensive IR dongle.
Anyone have any experience?
The FAQs on the products homepage state that the item
"only contains the Bluetooth™ profile to control the PS3™."
Yet again, people have gotten the PS3 sony remote to work wonderfully, as far as i understand it.
I intend to do my blueray viewing, and perhaps later my Netflix streaming, on the playstation and want to use the same remote to:
1. Turn on the and off my TV
2. Control boxee
3. turn on and off PS3
4. control PS3 playback
Any other alternatives? reasonable ones, that is? (under $100 and 100 man hours)
Anyone know if the new beta allows for users to place their courser into a text field via remote (or arrow keys) ?
I ask because i am considering using separate $20 bluetooth keypad should i need to.
