Default Keyboard has a USB connector?

Hi,

All of my previous keyboards had the circular connector at the end of the cable and my pc has the right port for it. I just bought a new keyboard and I didn't know it had a USB 2.0 connector at the end of its cable. Can I connect it to any USB 2.0 port or does it have to be inserted into the keyboard port?

That's what it's there for, it's almost rare to find a ps/2 anymore (at least they are becoming less and less available), some newer intel mobos don't even have inputs for ps/2 connections.

PS2 is old and is getting less common to see on newer equipment. Infact i think dell have gotten rid if it on all but there budget PC's.
