what you did to their job

Perhaps you needn't worry about them any more either ?

I can't find it on my keyboard, so back to work!
Thanks, Sven!

Top 10 weirdest keyboards Apr 6, 2006

A little off topic but here's a link to some of the oddest keyboards available.

http://gadgets.fosfor.se/the-top-10-weirdest-keyboards-ever/

Plus, and this is one of the coolest things I've seen this year - a keyboard where every key is a little screen whose entire appearance changes depending on what program/language you're using. You have to see it to really get the idea so:

I want one now!

It means format all your HDD, get rid of Windows, install Linux

It's the eternal battle between "the evil spawn" Bill Gates and the Linux penguin...

There's even a logo going around the Internet (sold in t-shirts and the like) of the Linux penguin dressed in a yellow sportsuit similar to the one Uma Thurman uses in "Kill Bill", and below the penguin it says, well, "Kill Bill" (referring to Bill Gates, of course).

I know this is OT from the original post, but I use a keyboard really similar to the Maltron 3D one. It's a Kinesis contoured keyboard: http://www.kinesis-ergo.com/

It's a bit hard to get used to, but then you can't live without it (particularly if you have RSIs like me).
