thanks for the link. Its interesting that they made a completely different style for this XT instead of keeping it the same but changing the color like with the Model M.

I just have to finish cleaning it and put it back to gather. and usb use it as is.

IBM "industrial" Model F

I have what I'm assuming is an "industrial" Model F because of the casing color. Its the same darker grey color that other IBM "industrial" model keyboards were manufactured in. The only thing is this one uses Oak FTM-CR switches instead of the normal capacitive buckling spring switches that most mo...

Am I the only one that hates artisans? No, you are not. I think they're pointless and usually make a keyboard look cheap and chintzy. I also am pretty annoyed by RGB lights. I like backlighting but I don't understand why one would want their keyboard to look like a casino slot machine. For one its ...
