Question Keyboards without the mark of the beast?


Hello,

Do you know where I can buy a keyboard without the "Windows" logo on the menu key?
Thanks,

Use some acetone to take it off, if not then, a sharp knife (but don't cut off your fingers) .

The version in the picture is QWERTZ instead of QWERTY because it is the German version. The English version is QWERTY.

I don't think you'll find much else without a Windows key, short of an IBM Model M...

There used to be keyboards for sale that had a penguin logo printed instead of the Windows logo on otherwise usual keyboards..haven't seen for a while now, but on the internet they were then. Some years ago or something..keep searching, maybe you'll find those

Also, you can get keyboards from Sun which not only don’t have a “Windows” key, but additionally use the correct UNIX placement of the Ctrl key left of the ‘A’ key.

I worked with those SUN keyboards. Nightmare. Didn't find where is the / so had to copy from the web. Can somebody explain what those window and menu/mail ??? keys are for. Never used either of them.

Hehe I have still an old IBM AT keyboard. Without Windows key. It weighs as much as a complete PC, and it makes so much clicking noise it can be heard two rooms down the alley. It is virtually indestructible as you can see. I believe it has run DOS 3.3. Sorry but no I don't sell
