I have a 15-year-old one that's still going strong (not a buckling-spring one,
which I was never that much of a fan of, but a keyswitch one), but I'm not
sure what I'd do if this one ever failed [0].  Wietse Venema keeps a stack of
IBM keyboards above his desk so he has a spare if a current one fails.


[0] Yes, I know you can still get third-party ones, but they're a pain to get
    internationally, and I'm not sure if they're as good as the originals.
