Developers use keyboards much more intensively than most users, so they have different needs than most consumers. The Sputnik laptop should have a special keyboard which will differentiate it from regular XPS machines:
- Eliminate the capslock key, replace it with the control key
- Add dedicated home/end page-up/page-down keys (not fn+arrows)
- Dedicated function keys (not dual-purpose multimedia keys)
- Replacable caps
- Remove windows right-click key
- Rename windows key to "Super" or "Meta" (get rid of the windows logo!)
- Make many different language layouts available for international hackers.
