I like the scooped F/J keys.  On previous keyboards I've burnt dimples
onto certain keys that are easy to miss when you're not looking 
(typically the edge cases like '/' and '#' on my keyboard.  This helps a 
lot when touch typing.

Not sure I buy this line:

   "Like on a piano, since there are no keys to look at when
    typing, your brain will quickly adapt and memorize the key

I've been playing piano (badly) since a kid and I still keep hitting the 
  wrong keys.  Also, it's a bit of a duff argument because people rarely 
sit down and play the piano all day, every day for a week.

Looks nice, though :-)  How much more black could it be?
