This looks interesting. However, the Model M sets the sturdy standard. Tough enough to bash zombies and and log all about it.

Very interesting keyboard, I sure would love to see how this little gem can be used and configured to switch easily between a bunch of configurations (gaming, programming, writing an essay), each with specific bindings and layouts.

Very nice wrist-pad in the photo too!

5 months after my previous comment, nothing has changed in terms of access to the giveaways. For a worldwide site on openness, it is pretty odd that many countries are discriminated. Has Red Hat taken any action to fix this?

We'll talk to our legal team again and see what they can do. Because laws regarding sweepstakes vary from country to country, we can only run these in countries that have already been cleared.

What is with the weird list of countries that can participate? What do these countries have in common? What about the rest of the world?
