I see, you are probably right. When I read the review I thought the writer
is used to normal 'soft' keyboards, as everyone trying my keyboard
complains, too, specially about the keys enter and space (or... enter and
space keys?). That reminds me of another keyboard, the exact opposite of
Optimus Maximus, and curiously none of those resist the temptation of a
foreign name, even if it's just an article...
After seeing Optimus Maximus (not Iuppiter, alas), that keyboard is not so
expensive anymore ; ).
