FWIW, they also have Linux keyboards with the ESCape key and the
CTRL key in the "proper" places (a la TTY ASR33, Dec VT100, Datamedia DT80,
etc.) and those layouts can be see here:
I checked those out. I was a bit disappointed, as I don't really see
any advantage with the linux keyboard. I've been using old 105 key
boards so long, I'm used to them and using fluxbox, I can easily
config the k/b how I want it. I use the windows key and Fn keys to
open much used apps. Very handy. I'm looking at the endurapro and
the mightymouse. Being an emacs fan, and not really using the keypad
for much of anything, they may be just the ticket.
As much as I'm loathe to endorse anything from M$, I must put in a
good word for their Microsoft Natural keyboards. They are very well
made and quite sturdy and provide the split ergonomic style I really
prefer. They are much better than the Logitech ergo keyboards, which
are basically crap and start losing keys within the year.
