habit is the killer of progress
from 1990 to 2005, my fav keyboard is the generic cheap $5 keyboards.
Any other shape or new button position different than that i refuse to use.
This shows, that i was also susceptible by habit. When you have no problem, you no want “solution”. Till you type a lot and got Repetitive Strain Injury, then, you begin to appreciate those “odd looking” ergo design you used to laugh at.

judge amazon review
one of the way to judge amazon review is to look at the rating distribution. cuz if u just read 1star, nothing u can buy. typicaly, 1star is 4 to 5%.
People Do Not Like Trackpad?
xah input device research new finding: it seems, nobody like trackpad. Or rather, people prefer mouse or trackball over trackpad. Because, by searching amazon, there are not many trackpad makers, and not many sells. In context, there are tons of mouses, trackballs, pen tablets.

Microsoft Windows keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Space c vs Alt + F4
Windows little known tip: Alt+Space c is more effective than Alt+F4 . It'll work when sometimes the latter won't.
However, Alt+Space c shortcut is language dependent. If the operating system is set to French, it'll have different key.
