« on: Thu, 28 March 2019, 16:14:34 »
Hello everybody and welcome to March's edition of Keyboard of the Month

It's time again for your nominations, so I hope you've bookmarked some of your favourite boards from the month of March because here's the place to showcase them!


Last month's winner was JesusFreke's Lalboard




Happy hunting!
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

I believe there is supposed to be a link to the relevant post ...

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
