I finally got the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (sheesh! what a mouthful) and I do love it. So much so that I bought a second one for the office.

One thing I keep wishing with the MS keyboards, though, is to trade in the 'zoom' button for a scroll like the what you get with the mice. The customization software just doesn't offer such a feature. Well, of course, someone has found a way to 'hack' it.

Andy Atkinson has an article showing how to make such changes. The only addendum I would provide is that with my drivers, the file to run is "itype.exe" instead of "type32.exe"

Very handy... heck, what else can I change in here....

Rich, these natural keyboards drive me nuts. I've met people who really like them (I guess you're one) but I find them a hindrance. I once had a "discussion" with a guy at recentChanges who was developing an "accordian" keyboard. Fewer keys...you typed with key combinations. He said he was blazingly fast with it. Well...I don't want to type faster than I think. I think I actually do better stuff the slower I type.
