I do not use any clipboard monitoring app now and I do not care about it personally. I had something in a far past on windows. It implemented something like clipboard with history and a preview.

The X Window System (X11) sends key events to applications both a keycode (to identify which physical key was pressed) and a translation, i.e. if the context within the application works with characters, what character should be used. Keyboards could have been made to do the same, i.e. so the translation comes from the keyboard, not the OS.
Another missed opportunity - some keyboards send an ID - I believe the 122 Terminal keyboards do and some of the keyboards used on Unix workstations. PC keyboards never have. As an alternative to the keyboard sending characters (in Unicode now) keyboards could, from the start, have send a code at initialisation that tells the BIOS/OS what layout that keyboard has to save people having to set it up separately within the OS.

Some bizarre develops below according to author's post about real keyboards. Forgive them whom don't know what real keyboards are click heredcopellino wrote: ↑22 Dec 2020, 16:36Yours is a brilliant suggestion. At the same time, It would be nice to insert the raspberry pi 400 into a mechanical keeb of our choice, maybe our most liked one, without being forced to build a new one starting from the scratch. The dimensions of the raspberry pi 400 PCB should be 286mm × 122mm × 23mm. (Ask Chryros for an imperial conversion, LOL) I have already tried to get the measurements of the void space inside an IBM m122 type II, but despite my most optimistic expectations, it seems not to fit. Should I turn my gaze toward chubbier beamsprings?
