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.

Yes, and as a user, I loved the sound. And I guess it must have been music in the ears of a discerning manager to listen to the developers at Tryllian -- many of them were using a model M, and vi, and had the habit of pressing Esc twice. Ratatata-beep! Ratatata! The sweet sound of extreme productivity.

Same here. My Tactile Pro is awesome, but at night the noise bugs my wife. Ah well. ;)
