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.

I use the Insert key all the time interacting with virtual machines. Ctrl+Alt+Insert is the VM equivalent to Ctrl+Alt+Del. I also use the Insert to control Winamp, Ctrl+Shift+Insert to pause.

Insert can also be setup to be a shortcut for the paste command in Office, if I remember correctly.
