Pardon the rant, but I just can't stand it when ctrl has been moved away from the bottom left corner. It really messes with my flow and accuracy when working. In my personal life it's not an issue because I simply don't ever buy laptops which have swapped ctrl and fn. But as a software developer, I sometimes have to work with laptops provided by the company I work for. Often they are not only slow, but also have those two keys swapped around. Yes I can work on them alright, but it's like a constant thorn in the side.
So, I would just like to ask: Why have some vendors chosen to do this? Is there a good reason for it? Is it supposed to be better? What's the deal?
