Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Microsoft slowly but surely trying to be a better citizen in the computing world - with the emphasis on trying. After years of dragging their feet, the company is finally implementing web standards in Internet Explorer, there's a boatload of interoperability information now, that sort of stuff. And then, just when you think they're starting to get it - they go behind our backs to do something incredibly insipid. It's small, you'll barely notice it, but dear lord, it's really, really annoying.

Who cares about a keyboard shortcut being mapped to do any function.

I don't think its Microsoft's fault at all. I think you whine too much.
All hardware vendors change key mappings all the times. Heck even software vendors change them more frequently. Just because some companies are following Microsoft suit that doesn't mean "they suck". No body forced you or the vendor to use/implement this. There are so many laptop vendors just find another one.
