habit is the killer of progress

from 1990 to 2005, my fav keyboard is the generic cheap $5 keyboards.

Computer Keyboards Gallery, Year 2006

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.

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.
