I bought 3 of this keyboards few years ago when Dell had if for $20. I used one at work (Ubuntu) and 2 at home (Win PCs). All are still working fine. But some characters on the keyboard that I use at work are gone. I mean the letters that print on the keys.

I have one that I have used at work for the last 5 years (I'm a programmer, so it is used all day, every day) and it's still going strong. Quite a few of the white on the letters has worn off, but as I touch-type that makes little/no difference to me. My keyboard has been a work horse and the value for $20 is an absolute steal in my opinion.
edit: I would add that I have also purchased a few of these for home, where they mostly get used by my children and wife but also see a lot of use, and have a couple sitting in boxes, "just in case".

Love this keyboard.
Microsoft, do what you want with Windows 8, but please oh please never stop making these comfortable keyboards.
Now if they would bottom out the price on the m570 trackballs again, I'd have a full set of spare ergonomic input devices.

so sad I missed this one. I try to get on this keyboard deal every year. Take my home one to work and have a nice new one at home. Hopefully it comes back again soon!
