Re: Air compressors vs. canned air
If you're interested in a quality keyboard you should check out
something from Cherry.
They made a keyboard at one point with a Tux-key in place of the
traditional windows key. I'm typing on the G81-1800 right now, and the
quality is outstanding. I type a great deal each day, and the price
tag is justified.
Here's an overview of their offerings:
To anyone who liked the IBM model M the Cherry G80-3000 should be of
particular interest. It's one of Cherry's older offerings, and can be
had with liner, soft, or "kick" keys. The G81-1800 doesn't have
different key choices, but to me they still feel a lot like the keys
on the model M (which I also have).

Then you need an IBM Model M. You won't wear it out.
I second that motion! I have two of them. I wish I had more.
They are the best keyboards ever made, in my humble opinion. (Or at least
the best keyboards I personally have ever used.) Unfortunately, IBM has
not made this keyboard, or any keyboard, for that matter, in years. But
I heard on the news about a year ago that some company was making a clone
of these keyboards, using IBM's old factory, if I'm not mistaken, for
high-end typing power users. The electronics have been updated for a USB
interface instead of the original PS/2 interface. But the key action is
identical. They aren't cheap! But if your computer can handle
a traditional PS/2 keyboard connection, and if you are lucky enough to
find one of the original ones used, you might get it for a reasonable price.
These are 101-key keyboards, not 104-key keyboards. They don't have the
two Windows® logo keys or the menu key. But who cares! I never use those
