Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

A keyboard's a keyboard's a keyboard - they're all pretty much of a muchness. There are programs you can get to rebind things like the Windows key to the linux "meta" key and suchlike, but it's probably not worth going and buying a specific linux keyboard which has a key labelled "meta" as the other 102 keys do exactly the same things.
That, and you've probably got a better choice of keyboards with Windows keys on them.
Why's the daskeyboard so expensive, it has no letters on the keys so it should be cheaper . My MS Multimedia keyboard was about a tenner inc key labelling so I think its a bit over the top to charge $80 for a blank
Distribution: Xubuntu 9.10, Gentoo 2.6.27 (AMD64), Darwin 9.0.0 (arm)
Mine is a logitech cordless keyboard and I've painted the windows keys black. but I have seen individual tux keys that you can buy to replace your windows key for most keyboard. finding anything without that stupid logo on it is next to imposable, and drives me nuts to. my general rule is if you can peal it of, otherwise get some paint or sandpaper (400 grit works well) or do what I did when I got my laptop and get a mac. (don't worry it runs linux)
