Where is my Natural (Split Ergonomic) Keyboard???!?!?!

Man I hope MS didn't discontinue them... The bluetooth version looks to have a slight curve but I don't know if it will feel the same.

Peace,
RA

#2,

Well, I dunno. If someone asks me to stick my finger into their Gummy-Bear, I'll probably be suspicious.

I'll probably ask them to pull my finger instead...

Does anybody else absolutely hate when the arrow keys on keyboards don't line up with the rest of the keys?

On some of those keyboards the arrow keys are slightly lower than the rest of the keys on the keyboard. I HATE that.

I also hate when the Insert,Home,PgUp,Del,End,PgDwn keys aren't in a horizontal rectangle. Drives me nuts!

That thumbprint keyboard looks pretty cool. And it has the correct layout!

#1. Ahh, finally someone at Microsoft realized those split keyboards are yucky!

#2. "gelatenous bear candy"? You mean Gummi Bears. 'Gummi' is German for Rubber.

#4. You get used to it. I now find the old style Ins/Del to be screwed up. I like the one on my optical desktop elite keyboard.

Keyboard Veterans for Truth has condemned split keyboard as being yucky! They unfairly create a divide between the G and the H keys!

#13 - what a great idea! The Delta Data 7000-T was cool as it got opposite C - it was a huge double screen beast though. Still, the colored groupings of keys made life a lot easier.
