Whenever I see pics of Model Ms it makes me miss mine but deep down inside I know I would never use it, I just want it. It is more of a decoration to me, a piece of history, that at one time was at the top of its class and has long since been forgotten and replaced. People talk about how the Model M looks ugly and for purely aesthetic reasons reject it. Yet at one time it was the keyboard that everyone thought looked aesthetically appealing. It was that new, cool, stylish thing that everyone wanted. Society got bored with it an decided that curves and slim are the new cool thing. The same thing with cars. It annoys me when people look at an old cars and say, "Ew, look at that ugly boxy looking thing." when they fail to realize that at one time that was the car everyone dreamed of having for its style. Society changes its idea of what is stylish and everyone follows the curve and completely rejects anything else besides what is currently deemed stylish. Most people can't look past what society deems as beautiful and see for themselves that many things have an unseen elegance to them even if they go against the grain. But anyways quality and performance are better than looks any day.
