    I'm missing something here. What's wrong with the keyboard layout?

    Oh. I get it now.

    So um...snap the keys off and rearrange them, then set the keyboard layout to whatever the UK standard is called. Big freakin' deal.

    maybe you should try to understand the problem first before attempting to offer a solution

    actually, that's all the problem appears to be. the person who wrote that is wrong. he said the shift key is too big which pushes the rest of the keys to the right, but he's wrong. the /? key should be next to the right shift, not the left one.

    EDIT: read further down in the comments (god, that whole thing is written like shit) and i found that the UK keyboard usually has the /? on the left which is kind of retarded, but what can you do. lollers.

    Nah, the issue isn't the /? key, it's the \| key, which on every keyboard I've ever seen (minus the ones made by Sun Microsystems, which are uniformly terrible), that key is above the Enter key.

    Maybe if we knew what was there, the real problem would be more obvious. My guess is it has an oversized Enter key, which is pointless and stupid.

    Right, so like I said, the Enter key is oversized, which as previously noted, is stupid and pointless.

    I've used US keyboard layout until I moved to the UK, and I haven't gotten around to finding a US keyboard here, so I have to switch between US and UK keyboards at home and work. I'm surprisingly used to it now, but I still find the UK layout annoying and slower for me.
