    I've long puzzeled over the diffeences in keyboards. The UK keyboard is the same keyboard as the rest of the world, though the letters and such may be on diffent keys. The US is usualy a phyiscally different keyboard with a similar but annoyingly different layout to the UK keyboard. If you count the keys you will find that a standard US keyboard has a different nunber of keys to the rest of the world.

    Having worked and lived in both the UK and US, I must confess that I prefer the UK layout, the double height and wide are two of the main benefits of the UK keyboard. I also like the backslash and pipe between the left shift and z. I managed to get rid of my last US keyboard at work when someone wanted it instead of a UK one, otherwise I'd offer you mine...
