1 ) I don't have sticky keys, but I have sort of busted my 'v' key (force pull) playing this game. It works most of the time, but if you hit it at a funny angle it doesn't.
2 ) Microsoft aren't the only people who make good ergonomic keyboards. I have a _very_ nice Logitech one. (The 'dodgy' key might go against this, but I abuse it a lot and it has lasted me over 2 years of pure gaming).
I love ergonomic keyboards, some people hate them, but I love them. And this one is better than the Microsoft ones because the 'middle' keys (t, g, b, y, h and n) are 'full height' all the way along, unlike the Microsoft ones which are only full height a little was along, then they go 'small'.
The only thing I have against this keyboard is that it is quite loud when you type. Apart from that, I love it.
