Response to: Apple Laptop Keyboards Unsuitable for Unix Users

I bought a 17" powerbook at the begining of this school term thinking I'd use it to ssh into my server from classes and use Emacs as my IDE for everything shy of breathing. I Love my PowerBook. But I spend a good 60% of my computing time in Emacs. I just wanted to say thanks to Anonymous2. This has been a great resource of information for issues that have been causing some serious frustration. Fortunately, I think the kludges will eventually get me on my feet, but I understand and agree with anonymous2's assesment of Apple's approach on these issues. If running several OSes (some emulated) wasn't a priority one (usability testing), this message would have been written on an x86 machine (Had I known about the HCI / Ergonomics issues before-hand that is).
