Keyboard Preferences

As a keyboard snob with an appreciation for buckling-spring mechanisms I thought I'd create a new Blosxom category to point to my (largely irrational) preference for clacking over squishing keys -

The Model M Keyboard - definitive.

Enduro Pro claims to be modelled on the classic IBM Type M (right down to the thumb-stick) - however the presence of a 'Windows' key does let it down in my eyes.

Dans Data Article on the Model M - interesting reading.

Matias Tactile Pro - remake of the classic Apple Extended keyboard. I actually really like the feel of the original Mac/Mac Plus keyboards but I suspect its almost impossible to get them to work with a modern PC/Mac due to their oddball phone-jack type interface.
