    Re:I am one step closer to having seen it all!

    $99.99 ? Ouch ...

    (BTW is there a way of making use of the Windows keys on the keyboard in Linux? Like bringing up the KDE or Gnome menu or something?)

    xmodmap or something like that. I think PB, Ash or Lovechild would know the correct file that needs modifying (among many others who no doubt know the answer to your question).

    Here's one with a flat panel screen a harddrive and stuff attached. Slightly more pricey than $99 but hey, it's an illuminated keyboard "with laser-etched keys that's right out of the future"

    Have you considered making your own? If I remember correctly back when I was a younger pup, I saw this great film ( The Matrix ) in which the main character had a keyboard that light up everytime he would press any of the keys. I do not believe it is as hard as it seems at first, this can be achieved by placing leds or some sort of light emiting bulb under( or around ) each key, and then have it toggle on and off everytime you activate a key stroke( ie: press KEY_a toggle on, unpress KEY_a toggle off ). Just a thought, but if you are lazy might as well just plunk the money .

    So....? Macs are pricey, yeah, but now that they are *nix powered I consider them a viable alternative. Just think about it: You can install all the GNU tools and even run X11 alongside cocoa plus you get better hardware support. Firewire for instance worked stable on OSX by the time you had to dig through the kernel source to get it working on your linux box. You get wireless LAN without any hassles,... Of course you want to connect to a real (read Linux) server that does the important stuff. But I think having a Powerbook that connects to a Linux desktop is actually a pretty neat setup to work with.
