I know it is a mild detail, but has there been any talk about swapping Caps and Tab?

I know from the Vortex Core keyboard experience that it really is a bit of a big deal. You can get used to having Tab sit where Caps 'should be', but it is annoying in a web page driven world to work with an obscure placement for the tab key.

The Vortex Core keyboard shipped with Caps left of A and Tab on a Fn layer of Caps. It drove everyone nuts to where Vortex changed the default mapping in a keyboard BIOS update to 'flip' them, making Tab the top layer and Caps on a Fn layer. Now new batches of the keyboard are shipped with this updated mapping.

I regularly swap caps lock and ctrl on keyboards I own. Not bothered to actually swap they keycaps, but it's easy enough to do in X on Linux. I assume by the name this thing runs Windows, and I can't speak for there, but if it's harder on a unified commercial OS compared to one that's largely a collection of bits and bobs then something's gone wrong.

There have been keyboard conversations on the GPD Discord. I mean can there ever be a new UMPC without a keyboard discussion :)

Those are some pretty sexy specs. It's also really rare to hear about a Thunderbolt port. That means this thing can potentially support external GPUs. Crazy. Also, it's a bit unusual to hear about the battery measured in Wh vs mAh. Do you just multiply/divide by voltage to get one spec vs the other? I think that's it. Anyway, with that much beef for hardware, just how long would the battery last on this thing? Hmmm....
