A couple years ago I transitioned from Sun keyboards to PC keyboards,
and it definitely did put a strain on my hands to use the PC ctrl key,
which as others have said before is heavily used in Unix and Emacs.
I probably use the capslock key once a day at most, and the control key
thousands of times. (I am using Linux.) I guess the situation could be
reversed for those in the Windows world. Still, when I do use Windows,
I use ctrl often in Netscape, and the caps lock only rarely. Why does
it have such a valuable location?
At least they didn't put the stupid Windows key right in the middle of
the home row.
