I actually have an original IBM Model M.  Manufacture date of July 22nd,
1987.  And I use Windows on a regular basis.  Yet, I get by without the
windows key quite well.  About the only two shortcuts I ever used were WIN+E
and WIN+R, for Explorer and Run.  It's not as useful of a key as many people
think it is.  It's actually more beneficial to those with disabilities, such
as low or impaired vision.
