Happy Hacking Keyboard is to die for. It is the one true keyboard
layout and all this PC, Johnny-come-lately crowd who F*D up a
perfectly good keyboard layout can rot in h*** for all I care. The
USB version even has two additional USB slots: mouse and memory card
or cell phone work well there :-).
Of course, the HHK is just a Sun Type 3 keyboard, with an inverted T
arrows added. Sweet feedback on the keys, and really worth the price
of a ticket to Japan to pick it up at PlatHome in Akihabara :-).
