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.

How do I enter kernel debugger in BeOS and Haiku now ?

Actually, I've been having a mac for some months now, and it's really painfully missing those keys along with insert, pageup/down... Sure you can use Fn+up/down, but hey, come on !
We can as well use a MacBook Wheelâ„¢ :-P

Oh and Function keys as 2nd way... that sux as well, who cares about wifi anyway...

Btw, Sun keyboards don't have SysReq, but they have StopA which is about equivalent (drops to OpenFirmware)
