Well - I had my preferences. One I used to like to use was Dullard Hump - (whomever that refers to I couldn't say) but after some inspiration I considered the movie from days gone by "Edward Scissorhands" and decided to settle for "Donald Littlehands".
Now we just need to find the appropriate assignee . . .
We'll just say I am a little picky, and old; and really don't want to change.
I have been using the Microsoft Internet Keyboard based keyboard for 20+ years now, the last 15 years or so have all been the Pro version with USB connectivity.
Me and my kb have an exclusive relationship; at the office and at home I have the same setup, including the MS Trackball Optical everywhere as well.
Prior to this kb I was using Type M or F keyboards back to the 80s
Now my home kb is near the point of no return. And they are getting hard to find. So I am going to purchase something new.
What I want-
1. I want to keep the same KB angle and rear height. My hands are molded at this angle now.
2. I would like to retain the special purpose keys for email, web, and if I can media controls.
3. Durability. Don't want to have to retrain my hands in 5 years to something different.
4. Full size.
I purchased an off-brand MX-Blue keyboard over the weekend and even though the size was a little smaller than I wanted, I could have learned to live with it. I guess it was off-brand as the Enter key was basically sitting at the detent level and other signs of being someone else's reject
Suggestions would be appreciated.
