"PFU Offers 20 Units of 'Happy Hacking Keyboard' as a Gift to College andUniversity Class of 1999 Graduates."

"Eligibility is open to students from a university, college, or equivalent level of school that will graduated between January 1 and June 30, 1999 in the U.S. Graduate students completing their degree during the same time period are also eligible."

"Happy Hacking Keyboard key layout is based on the SUN Type3 keyboard and has only the essential 60 keys. This key layout makes it easier to access the "Control" key (CTRL) and "Escape" key (ESC) which are used extensively by UNIX and Linux users.

"Another big advantage is the combination of its compact size and still retained standard key top size. The keyboard "footprint" is about half of letter size. Even with its small size and minimum 60 keys, all functions of a standard 101 keyboard are available.

"Since all of the 60 keys are within reach without moving the wrists, the user's hands do not have to travel far from the home position."
