XT -- the Model F for the rest of us! It is indeed a great keyboard and one of the easiest in the Model F line to get up and running. For those who do not feel inclined to install Soarer's Converter, there is the plug and play Hagstrom Converter.
The problem is that for many of us, it's one compromise or another too far on layout
* Too many hat keys.
* No gaps between alpha and numpad blocks
* No editing block, so if you use a lot of those controls via muscle memory, it's shot.
* Layout is ALMOST ISO, which drives Americans nuts.
I'd rather convert a 122-F internally, than deal with the hassles of an XT-F.
