Some of our older questions are about hardware recommendations. Well, Hardware Recommendations.SE is now live - lets clear up some confusion.

No, I'm not suggesting migrating these questions there, but properly and finally removing them from here.

In particular, I am looking at What are good keyboards for programming.

Programmers tend to type a lot of code, bashing a lot of shortcuts and a lot of other things.

What keyboards are good for programming?

This is a broadly unfocused question with 33 answers. Many not more than a picture, others just saying they wished they had a keyboard that cost several thousand dollars. This post is no more valuable (and out of date, that wonderfully expensive keyboard hasn't been in production for years) than going to amazon and browsing the reviews there.

If it has merit, reask the question on HardwareRec.SE with the appropriate constraints to scope - but it is not now nor has ever been a good question on Programmers.SE and its historical significance is very much in doubt.

    I agree, that post needs to turn a pretty shade of crimson.
