Not a problem for me: I'm switching between that ergo keyboard I posted earlier and a laptop very often (several times a day), but since they are so completely different (even Dvorak vs. Quertz), my brain seems to regard them as totally different input devices and I do close to no mixing up. BUT, when I got a new laptop last time, the F-keys where shifted to the left by one key because the ESC key was somewhere else (above F1), so I *always* hit F{n+1} when I wanted to hit Fn. It took a very long time to get used to this comparably small change of layout. Aweful! **Henrik
