I advise a Microsoft Natural keyboard. Your neighbors might approve of it. It is hardly ergonomic, but exactly aimed at the kinds of persons who want unergonomic keyboards labelled as ergonomic as long as they can wrap their head around it, and willing to pay for such a visual yet non-solution. There is a whole market out there for people who want an ergonomic keyboard but don't want an ergonomic keyboard.
Why do you advise a MS natural? I already made clear that I don't like the staggered keys! Not to mention the rubber dome switches.
I work at a school. If there was a TE keyboard in my classroom, a co-worker could operatie it, if they saw a datahand they wouldn't. Just a normal looking keyboard without the 19th century characteristics, you see? Also a plus: operating backspace with your thumb! Ik like that.
Having said that: the mighty Datahand rules! (I don't agree with TE that it is less ergonomic than their board, that's nonsense)
