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

I voted 'Alt', which corresponds to the command/apple key on my Mac. However, the F9-F11 keys are used by Expose, and that alone was worth the $129 for upgrading to OS X 10.3. If you haven't seen it, try it out at their web site which has a demo (requires Quicktime ... of course). It may not seem like much, but once you use it, you think "Good Lord, how in the world did I ever live without this before?"

    Actually "Alt" is "Option", not Cmd / Apple / Pretzel.</pedant>

    But yeah, I was going to say something about it being omitted as well. Not to mention what's really most useful is the chord of Ctrl-Opt-Pretzel-Space that opens QS (at least for me; default's Ctrl-Space, but that's just . . . meh).

      A fair point, but my Windows keyboard here at work has a passel of extra keys in that area of the keyboard, so it's easy for me to get confused. Well, easiER. Apparently it was designed by the same person who named all the "Peach" streets in Atlanta.
