    Why can't I find a WHITE keyboard any more !!!


    Hi there

    It seems that these days external keyboards only come in BLACK with Silver letters on the keys.

    I prefer the old WHITE / CREAM ones with BLACK letters on the keys. I've resuscitated two old keyboards with the PS2 round connector --fortunately I still have the PS2--->USB connectors so the keyboards work. I've also got the USB==>USB wireless adapter so I can still use these WIRELESSLY (except for the USB-->to the wireless transmitter) but good enough so the keyboard is effectively a Wireless one.

    I find the white keyboards much easier to use if I have to LOOK at the keys -- especially if I'm using different language keyboards.

    Just a gripe - but I'm surprised all the external keyboards I see are always BLACK ones.

    Cheers

    And to think that once, long time ago I painted my KB and case black and everybody was saying it's stupid and would never catch up.

Going way back to the 99xx builds, I've never observed Conexant 20582 'SmartAudio HD' working. Still not working with 10159. Shows good in Dev Mgr, shows mixer, volume control, etc, certainly not muted but not a peep. Also, disk perf on this...
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
