I use an original IBM AT keyboard, this one I'm typing on now was made in

Aside for the fact that modern keyboards are so mushy that it's like trying to
type on a damned "dead flesh" Spectrum keyboard I prefer the original 84/85
key AT layout. For one thing the function keys are down the left hand side of
the keyboard....where they're supposed to be!!!
