Basically, light gray = shift+key, and black = shift-hold+key, they are two different shift planes with different functions in many keys, hence the visual hint in the annunciators.

Like, huh? They do? (hauls out stock 50G, confirms they don't, convinced someone's been smoking the 8" floppies again).

I automatically assumed he meant a 50g running the same newRPL firmware (now reading again, he didn't specify if the 50g was stock or newRPL).
In my response I used 50g (ambiguously, I realize now) to refer to the hardware, but I always assumed we were comparing newRPL on a 50g with newRPL on a 39gs.

Stock firmware is not grayscale but plain B&W, so it could've never done that.

I must admit I misread the context too, I didn't even think of the "50G running newRPL" vs "50G running stock".

He had me checking my own 50G as well. I wonder how many other forum members guessed the context correctly? I know I didn't. I don't have a second 50G that I can newRPLise, nor does it have a complete set of 50G-stock features. Yet. I understand things like this take time though.
