I'm having trouble sleeping (2007-04-06 02:45) so It's time to rant.

Modern keyboards suck. The only people who will deny this are the people who make or sell them. Here's a list of what is wrong with them.
It wasn't always this way. Hardware manufacturers made products to last. The most noted was the IBM model M series with the bucking spring key switches.
There were others that used Alps sliders (Focus, Dell, Fujitsu). They aren't as sturdy as the IBMs but quit clickey. Cherry switches are supposed to be good but I've never seen one.

This is the ideal keyboard. I know there are many religious issues here, anyone who disagrees with me is an evil heretic and will be going to hell.
