For the past 10 years, System76 has created many of the best Linux laptops on the market. Today, in addition to well-known products such as Thelio Desktops and Pop! _OS, the company also produces various peripherals.
An example of this is the new System76 keyboard, which will be built specifically for the operating system Pop! _OS. According to company, the keyboard will contain 3 different key sizes. More specifically, the letters and numbers are 1U in size, all the tab keys are at 1.5U, while the Shift have a size of 2U.
Rather, many of you are wondering about the size of the space. In this case, System76 wanted to "break out" the appearance of the keyboard. For the same reason, the company decided to split the space into two smaller 2U keys.
Another reason for the separation of space, is the ability of the keyboard, which allows users to remap on each key. For example, users can change one of the space buttons with the backspace. With this feature, each user can remap the keys according to their needs.
Of course, some keyboards already allow users to change some of the keys. However, the new keyboard also allows change of letters and numbers. In fact, users can change any key, whether it is a letter, number or any of the sticky keys.
In addition to the keyboard, the company will create an accompanying software, which will allow easy change and management of the keys. Other than that, using application, users can set a specific pattern on the keyboard, which they can later use on others computers, without having to adjust the keyboard again.
However, although it has announced many features of the device, System76 has not announced the official release date. According to some users, the new product will be available from the end 2020.
