Hardware, Embedded Systems It's funny how while software changes so fast, and many hardware components evolve at ridiculously fast paces (processors, memory, hard drives), the keyboard has remained largely unchanged over the years - until recently, that is. Even Lenovo has now buckled under the pressure, switching to a chiclet-style keyboard for ThinkPads - while also removing the SysReq key.

Caps lock!

Well the obvious answers are caps lock, scroll lock, break, the windows key, the 'right click' key, and the plethora of Mac modifier keys (control *and* command?).

I think caps lock should become the compose key. It would be nice to have a standard set of alt-gr glyphs printed on the keys too.
