    Phoronix: More Random Gift Ideas For Linux Enthusiasts & Others Into Tech

    Last week I shared some 2016 Holiday Gift Ideas For Linux Enthusiasts, Gamers. Since then more ideas came to mind with other interesting tech gift ideas, particularly for Linux/open-source enthusiasts, as well as other favorite gadgets and interesting devices I've come across in the past year. So here are some more ideas of stocking stuffers and other fun purchases for the holidays...

    I still always take the chance to recommend the TypeMatrix 2030 keyboard to geeks everywhere. Especially if they're interested in trying out Dvorak or alternative keyboard layouts. I've owned 6 of them (3 generations, one for home, one for work), and still use it every day. Not cheap but great!

      I remain partial to the microsoft natural keyboard 4000 (because I like cords) used one for many years - only takes a day to get used to it

      as for all the other stuff in the article - that Michael fella sure likes his gadgets

          Michael Interesting exchange rates on Amazon.com and Amazon.de. I thought the idea of the cable management would be interesting and looked what they cost in Germany.
          Well, looks like they're a BIT cheaper in the US (14$ vs. 69€)!

            Nothing will make me give up my current mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Green switches.

              A lot of people say that but I've just never understood the thing with mechanical keyboards. I've tried several, but it's just a lot of noise and clattering away. I'd rather have a keyboard that's quiet and quick to type on.

                For ergonomics, you can't beat Kinesis' Advantage 2. The only down-side is that you'll probably want to use it with a keyboard tray.

                https://www.kinesis-ergo.com/shop/advantage2/

                Available with Cherry MX Brown or Red switches and optional Qwerty/Dvorak dual-key caps.

                  I do like that the Kinesis has straight rows (and not staggered keys). I've never tried it but I can imagine it's quite nice. I'm very happy with the TypeMatrix, I'm not sure the Kinesis actually brings anything more to the table, except bringing the hands apart.

                    The key wells follow the sweep of your fingers, further reducing hand motion and shortening reach.
