Just tried that, but could neither find a picture nor a reference in a Web page...
At first I thought of some similarities to the Mac layout (I use an iMac at work sometimes), but that button appears to be utterly useless although it is the same size as the typical right-hand-side SHIFT.

The embarrbutting thing is that it took me several days to look at it closely and realise that it was not labeled SHIFT. Rather than having an arrow pointing up, it was just a small hollow circle (outline of a circle, that is).
Isn't that button intended to disappear though1? Use of that button only encourages the vendors to 'stamp' the keyboard, somehow locking it to an O-S manufacturer. I am not even fond of terms like "Windows-compatible keyboard", or "designed for Microsoft Windows" or "Winmodem".... or DRM. Hardware should never be exchangeable or analogous with software. Never ever! How would you like changing your car and find the throttle and posi- tion of brakes interchanged.
