Amen. I've been using them exclusively for years. Up yours Bill Gates! You can take your silly little Windows keys and stick'em where the sun don't shine. Apparently these extra keys do something useful, but obviously I haven't figured it out yet.

I'm Partial to my Northgate OmniKey 102 and my Microspeed PC-TRAC myself. Though I have an 80's issue IBM "Space Saver" as my backup, running with one of the modular AT cables (oddly enough, I bought it at a Karioke shop).

Now that I looked a little closer, I noticed there's something a little "odd" about that IBM PS/2 keyboard above. The Enter key looks different, and it has the / key in the same place as on an IBM PC 5150/5160 keyboard? Is that a foreign model, or is that an oddity keyboard? The only ones I've ever seen had the large rectangular enter key and the "/" up by the "+" and "=" keys.

It's a Scandinavian (Sweden and Finland at least...) keyboard. Bear being Swedish and all Smile

The Model G keyboard (Model M with no LED's) on my XT had a similar layout (British). Although the key cap with | and \ seems to have escaped this photo!
