First of all the typing itself. It is not really bad, but it is light
years away from the experience in my older Xs (and for the record I
think the best keyboard was on my old X41, not on the newer machine,
although the difference is small).

But much more serious is the fact of the missing keys. I am a long-time
die-hard emacs user and use dozen of lisp functions on a daily base,
which I have bound to all keys available, (for example break runs, bbdb,
print runs flyspell-auto-correct-word etc etc). I am used to that
keyboard since the old days of my X41 or even before, so its is almost
hard wired in my brain with all the consequences.
