USB or PS/2 keyboard?

On PS/2 ... I've had problems on various versions of Linux on my
BigSur where the keyboard doesn't work.  Unplugging and re-plugging
the keyboard (and then typing a few characters) always seems to
unjam it.

On USB ... I often fail to get all the config options right to enable
the keyboard ... but that's a personal problem.
