Can I ask such question in Stack Overflow?

I'm looking for a small ergonomic keyboard that is suitable to programming and preferably has the ctrl key on the usual caps lock place (to make vim shortcuts easier). However, I have been unable to find one, even though I did a thorough research on the internet.
So I need to know what other programmers with similar needs use.

Can I ask it on SO, or is there a better stack exchange site to ask this?

Stack Overflow is not about hardware. I think Super User is the best place to ask hardware questions. However if it is a shopping question it will be off-topic all over the Stack Exchange network.

Shopping questions are off-topic all over Stack Exchange. –  Mat Dec 22 '12 at 10:00

It is indeed kind of a shopping question, but on the other hand, I'm not looking for recommendations, but I just want to know if the described keyboard exist. –  Chiel92 Dec 22 '12 at 10:11
    
@Chiel92: FWIW, I use the Mac OS X keyboard prefs to switch my caps key to CTRL (System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard -> Modifier Keys). Standard features of OS X FTW! :-) –  Martijn Pieters Dec 22 '12 at 10:17
    
Currently, I also have it remapped on my ubuntu. But it'd be cool if it's already in the keyboard layout, since it'd work on any system by default. However, it's not a must-have. –  Chiel92 Dec 22 '12 at 10:22
