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.
