 I love this keyboard ! IBM Model M is the most 'popular' keyboard for me..

Everyone should test mechanical keyboards once in their life ! I now use recent Cherry powered mechanical keyboards..

i dont see how you, being color blind, could perform the dithering onthe bottom of the keys. even for someone with good perception they're almost invisible.

Totally agree Metaru ! My bad.. I'm using Gimp so I think I could blame the < key (next to shift on azerty kb) wich could have shifted some colors.. Anyway, please accept my apologies.. and wait..(i know it's not an excuse)..did I mention I'm colorblind (no joke here)..

unsure as to how you could cram 37 colors on something as monochomatic and plain as this. and on top of that, the dithering you added here and there makes no sense, considering you were so careless about color count. the whole thing could be done with at least 1/3 of the ramp you used.

My jaw dropped and I starred into this like an idiot for a second. I really like the orthogonal presentation!

awesome! looks very realistic and indeed a nice keyboard, this is like what we used in school a few years ago unless i'm mistaken... very cool tho.

Downloaded this thing ages ago that replaces "keyboard" with "leopard" everyhwere

I don't know how to unninstal it.

Oh well. Nice leopard.


I used to own one that looked a lot like this. Miss those times. Windows 98 and everything.
