P.S. Best keyboard I've owned was a $15 scissor-switch cheapy from NewEgg. It went bad after two years of heavy use, and the company no longer exists. It was glorious - very low keystroke, total laptop feel, and completely silent. I could listen on the phone and take notes at high speed, and the caller would never know - it was that quiet. (Sigh) Guess what? You can still get a keyboard with function keys on the left. Remember those "WordPerfect" keyboards. Guess who scrapped that idea? Hint - first name starts with "B," last name is Gates.

So right. Passive computing is so...degenerate. Why do I long for the days of WordStar. When computing grows up, it will be greatly segmented. It will be modular. It will include complex apps that use only the keyboard and that enable great power and creativity. I'm standing here on the corner with my cardboard sign: "Won't someone please code a real word processor?"
