It was a sad moment when I realized that I have to move on and find a new keyboard.
While I could have bought a PS/2 adapter, I needed the “Windows” key which is available on newer keyboards.
I think a big majority of programmers love their keyboards and their layout, just like me.
I am very picky when it comes to keyboards. If I don’t like the keyboard, I might not like the whole laptop for instance.
It took me a while to get used to the old MacBook Pro’s keyboards but just after I started liking their keyboards, Apple changed the mechanism to the butterfly mechanism and made the keyboards repulsing in my opinion. I won’t buy a new MacBook because of their keyboards. The same goes for Microsoft Surface laptops. I did not like their toy-like keyboards and therefore won’t buy, endorse or use a Microsoft Surface book or laptop . The most pleasant keyboards so far are the IBM / Lenovo keyboards. That’s why all of my PC laptops are a Lenovo X or T series.
