Apple is removing the Escape key
from their new MacBook Pro. This is worse than removing floppy drives, CD drives, and headphone jacks combined. If you're like me you still use vi every day
. Having to toggle virtual buttons constantly would force me to move to some sort of (gasp!) GUI editor.
I guess there's no stopping progress. I'd probably attach an external mechanical keyboard to one of those laptops anyway. (If they still have USB ports.) Don't get me started on laptop keyboard key switches.
