So I just bought a new Adesso compact keyboard because it was an affordable option to try Cherry MX Blue keys.
It is not a bad keyboard but I really want to get rid of the windows keys. I don't use windows (Linux instead).

I'm not sure if they are standard Cherry key caps. I believe the keys on my Cherry point of sale keyboard are a bit shorter.
It would be neat to get some blanks or interesting key caps for this model.
Some of the Linux programs I use make use of the Windows key so I really want something without the Windows logo on it.

Here is the model I have:

It sure is a switch (no pun intended) to move from my full sized IBM terminal keyboard to this...
My fingers now go tick instead of clunk-ping. I like em both.

Pretty sure those are standard KBC / Filco / etc profile caps on Adesso, so order some blanks or custom engraved / lasered keys from wasd.

OK, before I do here is a profile view.
I find it odd that they use single space Windows keys.
I assume it is a "row 1" key. I just want to make sure before I spend a chunk of money on 2 keys.

Yeah, that's right. 1x windows and 1.5 ctrl, alt is what iOne always does.
