Agreed! I use this key all the time, for everything. anything I want, tap the windows key and start typing, bam, found it, if they change it I will be uber po'dI use the menu key fairly regularly, keeps me from having to reach for the mouse so often for certain things, even in Linux. Can we stop changing keyboards. I can't stand laptop keyboards and multimedia keyboards where I need to hit a function key to make F1-F12 work.
I definitely agree that we don't need vendor, or worse yet application specific keys on keyboards.
