A couple of years back I bought a Compaq keyboard from a computer fair
for my flat mate. He was adamant that he wanted a keyboard without a £
sign as it was what he was used to. Turns out his old home PC had got
the region set to US.
I think I still have it somewhere.
I could get on with a US keyboard (I've even got on with a French AZERTY
keyboard once) but I wouldn't like it.
