Yes, they're probably just a PS/2 interface keyboard, but the ones I've
used are HORRIBLE to type on.. the keys are mushy, and are difficult to
push down (and don't give any physical feedback when you do push them
down far enough).
Purdue used those in computer labs for a few years starting when I got
here ('99), and have finally gotten rid of most of them.
