I've been using a pc keyboard for so long I'm totally used to the inverse T, besides it isn't all that different from the NMS8250 keyboard I was used to before that.
I do not like a layout like the VG8235 has, but the Turbo-R's looks like something I could handle well.

There are almost no pc keyboards with a diamond or cross cursor layout except for some accessibility ones with large keys, and even those are a rough approximate. Seems like after inverse T became the norm everyone just stopped trying something else.

Except Apple? They have a keyboard model that somewhat mimicks the 8250's layout, only the up/down keys are way too small. I don't think I'd like it:

@Pencioner let us know if that keyboard works :)

That's Apple's currently most-preferred layout — it's on everything that has been refreshed in the last couple of years, I think. Probably only the MacBook Airs and the extended keyboards still have an ordinary upside-down T. It's on the small standalone one, in case anybody wanted to spend an absurd multiple of its value on a new keyboard. Even Apple's own online store also offers a Logitech.

It's actually a fine arrangement though, because of the ditch in the middle. Your finger goes straight to that without looking, and then you either push the thing above it or the thing below it. Keys that size but flat would be a hassle.

Only with OCM-PLD firmware, you can use the WINDOWS key instead of SPACE key for the fire.
