Approved Keyboards

Last week I pushed Ana to get the same keyboard I purchased for both home and work. Her place of employment (most of you know where, but I shall not mention them) locks their machines down beyond belief, so she needed to send in a request to have the necessary microsoft keyboard driver, IntelliType Pro, installed.

Today she was told she couldn’t use that keyboard because “approved ps/2 keyboards do not require device drives in order to operate”. Sound stupid? Yep, it is. They couldn’t even flat out say “no, your device isn’t supported. you can’t use it.”. It’s a USB keyboard and they had to dance it with their BS, pseudo-passive-aggressive garbage.
