Be warned, this is a rant.
Today is Biblical Magi day in Spain, so i got some nice presents. Amongst them i got a new keyboard to replace the current one, that has half broken keys and sometimes i end up pressing C instead of Ctrl+C with the bad consequences this has (good we have Ctrl+Z, but as Ctrl is the broken key, sometimes this fails too :-D). The keyboard in question is a Microsoft Wired Keyboard 500 [image], and i will have to return it, not because it is from Microsoft, but because it follows the trend to not have keys where they should be.
Why is there a key that is not Return below backspace?
Why right Ctrl is not in line with the vertical of Shift?
Why the Insert, End, etc keys are in a 3x2 block instead of the typical 2x3?
Why the 4 arrow keys are not on the same baseline than right control and 0 from the numeric keyboard?
Why F12 is not on the vertical of backspace?
This surely seem small things to the dude that designed it, but me, that know the keyboard by memory NEED that the keys are where they should be, and unfortunately it's becoming quite hard to find a decent keyboard with the keys in the correct positions :-(
