Those are two of the things I detest the most about "modern" AT-style
"ESC" should be top left and "Ctrl" should be immediately below the "TAB"
key. Oh, and most importantly, "Return" *SHOULD* be "J" shaped (or at least
horizontal) rather than these annoying vertical ones we're subjected to
nowadays....I'm forever hitting "#" by mistake, even to this day.
Other than that they're OK; though I'd rather have the function keys down
the left hand side of the keyboard where they belong! :-)

With the sole exception of the "Return" key, I agree with you 100%.
