Hardware, Embedded Systems It's funny how while software changes so fast, and many hardware components evolve at ridiculously fast paces (processors, memory, hard drives), the keyboard has remained largely unchanged over the years - until recently, that is. Even Lenovo has now buckled under the pressure, switching to a chiclet-style keyboard for ThinkPads - while also removing the SysReq key.

I use sysrq occasionally in Linux to sync the filesystem and shutdown safely when everything on screen is frozen. It's a nice failsafe. alt-sysrq r e i s u b ;) Of course, I'd rather not ever have to use it.

I just bought a Deck keyboard, to get backlit keys in a quality keyboard, and while it's well made, I still prefer the Unicomp.

I love my Deck. Did you get one with tactile or linear switches?
