My first PC being an IBM-XT (graduating from a Selectric w/ 4K memory),
that became my keyboard of choice from that point forward. I do believe
they were manufactured for IBM by Keytronic, and through the '90s bought
several spare keyboards (and spring kits) from them. When my
wife recently came home from Staples with one of those mushy wireless
keyboards (featuring pads rather than keys), I made her take it back. I
must have that tactile sensation, and is probably why many novelists still
love their manual Royals.

(Now where are my pipe and slippers....)
