in reply to The most useless key on my keyboard is:

Although I voted for "Caps Lock (always leave it off)", what actually happens is -- I get so tired of accidentally hitting it once in a while, that I finally disable it on all computers I use (Linux and Windows both). If I ever need to do all caps (and I can't remember the last time I did!), I just hold down the shift key with whichever little finger I'm not using.

So for me it's actually a "worst than useless" key, it's the only one I have to expend an effort to disable!

    Actually I voted for F12. But Caps Lock is a good candidate, too. Whenever I sit at a system, where never worked on before, I change the system configuration from "Switch off Caps Lock by Caps Lock Key" to "Switch off Caps Lock by Caps Key".
    So, diabling Caps Lock is not that effort any more.

    I am not sure why people dislike the caps lock key unless they are just used to never writing things to other people. Occasionally you need a heading or a title that is in all caps and anything over around 3 letters it is typically quicker to hit caps lock type it out then unlock it.
