full n-key rollover.
and i have to wonder why it would only be detected at boot, i've hotplugged PS/2 keyboards without problems, not sure about mouse though... don't have any surviving PS/2 mouse left.
for instance, i just disconnected this 7G and reconnected it to type my last line.

let me try that in a sec, but i am curious what would be different between PS/2 keyboards from one to another given they all uses identical signal pattern to communicate with the PS/2 controller chip on the motherboard.
wait, yeah i remember now, it won't work if not booted with it connected first... though i am pretty certain PS/2 keyboards should work with one another if u just hotswap it since they all are identical anyway as far as the PS/2 controller is concerned.
in the case with ninja though if i interpret it correctly, the keyboard just being disconnected mid use or what not (after boot) wouldn't matter as long as he just reconnect it back.
then again my 7G is permanently attached to my main box, given it's size and weight plus the large cable, so i probably can't really relate to conditions where it being disconnected would be an issue because it will never be disconnected in my case.
for portability i just use my second active keyboard, the wireless 320 if i needed control from the sofa.

NKRO will be nice, and the fact that PS/2 interrupts rather than USB's polling will ease a TINY bit off the CPU made my decision.
Really the decision makes almost no difference, but I kinda feel like trying PS/2
