Have you ever been angry with a keyboard layout?

I get angry every time I find myself using a computer in France or Belgium. It's like a whole 'nother country there.

The only keyboard layout I've ever been angry at was Compaq's stupid "split spacebar" design where half the space bar acted as backspace!
Lol, this Compaq's keyboard looks so annoying. Especially it would be more painful when you are typing an important document or an email and you hit the backspace instead of the spacebar :mad:

Yeah, in college one of my friends had a computer with that. I could type fast, so I'd make a little money typing people's papers up for them. A friend had that keyboard, and I typed his paper up on his computer. I got half a page in before I looked at the screen and saw a giant string of gibberish, as half the words were missing their last letter and the following word had run in to it. (Hit backspace instead of space.) I refused to finish it on his keyboard.

Lol, that's awful... Thank the Lord that such keyboards of Compaq are not in the trend now! And I hope they (or anyone else) will never plan of launching any keyboard layouts similar to this one in the future even. ;)
