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)
