comment Does Unity 2d use fewer system resources than Unity 3d?
Downvote? qt-quick is a very top-notch GUI toolkit, it actually is moving to OpenGL in qt 5.0, but in my experience qt quick runs much better than unity-3D, even with good 3D hardware and drivers.

left shift. You might have to turn on usb keyboard in your BIOS if you are using a usb keyboard, or you can try to find a PS/2 keyboard (if your motherboard has that port, most do), which always work.
