Another great article (as ever). I'm the father of a three and a half year old boy and nodded all the way through reading it. Congratulations to you and Mrs Attwood and your families :-)

I'm currently looking for a replacement for my trusty 2007-issue MacPro. Your new rig has me considering getting a Wintel machine for the first time in just over a decade :-) If it could run OS X *and* Windows 7 like my 'Pro I'd do it now, but I'm not sure that it will :-(

Great article, I couldn't agree more. I've been using an old IBM SpaceSaver II server keyboard (no numeric keypad, built in Trackpoint nipple, nice and clicky). I love macs but everytime I get a new desktop machine I have to ebay the attractive but useless fancy-pants Apple keyboard - all style and no substance. Muggles (non-techies) express surprise when they see my state-of-the-art MacPro connected to an unassuming '1980s style' keyboard. This just goes to show how much they know ;) PS. Agree wholeheartedly with your view on non-typists. The analogy re: pianists is a very good one. How much time DO you spend at the keyboard ...?
