because sam, when ur in a full screen game and u clip the win key it takes u outta the game.. and some games really dont like that, and if your not  running a fairly new system and can take a while to get back into ur game.
Learn to type.  ;)

Sure it does, it's called muscle memory. Do enough of it and you will instinctively know where the keys are, which is why it's so hard for me to adapt to a new keyboard. My hands know where the most commonly used keys are and the Windows key just doesn't factor into that, my fingers have no need to go near it, so they don't. My keys are worn down in the same spot because I'm always hitting that exact spot on the key.

What he said...

I've been preaching the touch typing thing here for ages. It's largely fallen on deaf ears, but...

Once you learn the keyboard, you don't look at it or even consciously think about it, you just do it.

Even if you're gaming, hitting the right key to kill the big, bad dragon, as opposed to hitting the Windows key, is still the same skillset.

Where everything out here ain't what it seems
When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

Wallacy atm nothen to new, systems to old, but mostly fps style


and it isnt hard to clip the win key when ur using WASD, flicking the space, and alternating between ctrl,alt and shift with one hand, added to that that my fingers arnt  short and stubby, then it becomes easy to clip or accidentally hit

Commonest used letter in the alphabet, figures, seven in this sentence alone :)
Math fail. According to what I was taught at school, it adds up to 12.

Commonest = 1
Used = 1
Letter = 2
The = 1
Alphabet = 1
Figures = 1
Seven = 2
Sentence = 2
Alone = 1.



:)

I meant before I added the comment, and that's arithmetic, not math :)
