I believe so.  I’m typing this on my Extended II keyboard.  I bought it when I bought my PowerMac 8500/180 in January ’97.  When I purchased my G4/450 (the second sold in the area) the keyboard was such a joke, I immediately invested in an ADB-to-USB converter (as in the next day).  I now use it on my Mac Pro. :-)

I have to admit, I rather like the keyboard that came with my SGI O2.
