the boss/affirmative keyboard is great. I esp like the jump key that jumps
from one signon ssn to another. I alt-tab to switch from one window to
another, alt-jump to switch from one ca signon window to another.

my only complaint is the price.  I need the kbd driver for w2k.  the price
is $95.  for the kbd and driver it is more than $150.  I share my kbd and
monitor between a w98 pc and w2k pc.  Total price comes to $250+.
