Hardware, Embedded Systems "Recently I had a chance to spend some time with the second version of the Das Keyboard. While this product is still plain black like its predecessor, a number of other changes were made in order to get it more in line with what consumers are looking for from an elite keyboard. The Das Keyboard is designed for power users who have the layout of a traditional keyboard memorized and interested in doing two things- increasing their typing speed and impressing their coworkers."

ps2 to usb adapters do work -- I use one at work to keep using my wonderful, wonderful, lovely, rsi-healing IBM keyboard. The big problem is that the shift state isn't kept consistently. That means that selecting a stretch of text using shift-pgup/pgdn isn't reliable. But it's a small sacrifice, given the advantages of using a real keyboard. Nick as many of them as you can, so you've got enough to last you until your death, that's my advice.
