    Re: What kind of keyboard do you use?

    I use a Microsoft multimedia natural keyboard, I use at my desk when my laptop is hooked up to my monitor. The keys however are considerably bigger than my laptop, so cause of the way I game on my laptop by not using the right click, and use the alt key instead, so alt usually get shot rather than space. But I love the keyboard to bits, especially the media buttons to listen music while gaming.

    Re: What kind of keyboard do you use?

    Well for the longest time I was just using a regular straight up Dell SK-158 English/Spanish keyboard, until I recently started developing pains in my wrists & fingers from the constant constricted typing, but a month back I found a couple of Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboards from a vendor at a local flea market for 5 bucks.
    MAN!!! The best 5 bucks I've spent in a long time, too bad he didn't have anymore available I definitely would've bought up the rest of them.
    Thank goodness I've been pain free ever since!!!

    Anyone have this working with Ubuntu " Thermaltake TT eSports Poseidon Illuminated – Brown Switch Edition USB Full Backlight "?

    Or are most of the mechanical keyboards incompatible

    I use the keyboard that comes with whatever laptop I currently own. This one is on an BM ThinkPad T60p. The keyboard I've used the longest was on a Mac Mini, which was in use for a little over 2 years. When shopping for a keyboard, I tend to favor Logitech keyboards.

    I use the one built into my laptop (a ThinkPad W520), and it's pretty nice. I use Dvorak as my keyboard layout.

    Thing's mechanical. (I think.) Built like a tank.
    I get a solid click from every key-press and a very satisfying "clunk" every time I hit the return.

    I got it at a yard sale with a bunch of other ancient hardware years back.
    I plan on keeping this thing until the ink wears off the keys.

    And, isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean, all you get is one trick: "rational thinking."
    But, when you're good and crazy? Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! The sky is the limit!

    Saitek Eclispe II, which I don't like that much. The backlight is too weak for my taste and the lighting does not come through the center of the keys. I also don't like the keyboard press feel that much. It doesn't feel like it is returning fast enough for my tastes.

    I am thinking of buying either the Logitech K740 or the Corsair Vengeance K70 Cherry MX Brown.

    Any opinions on this?

    I have a Logitech G11 that I like less than the Eclipse II. The Logitech G11 is rated highly on Newegg.

    My friend just bought the CODE keyboard. maybe I should give it a try?
