Vote for your favourite key here.

I vote for the Enter key (the one by the quote key), because it is my indicator of when my keyboard needs cleaning.

I like the SHIFT key, because I think of the Nissan commercials.

Don't make me choose!

But on my keyboard the right shift key is bigger.

Bigger is better.

So the right shift key.

SHIFT_right

The little windows key on the left side of my keyboard, 'cause I've disabled it.

My vote for worst key of the year is the right Apple/Function key on the mac keyboard, which being exactly where the AltGr key is on a real keyboard is very inviting to press at the wrong time.

The little menu key between the right windows key and the right Ctrl key, which makes it possible to do anything you can do with a mouse (easily) possible with just one finger of one's left hand.

Insert, because you can sneak up to people's PCs and switch their input mode from Insert to Overwrite. Most people don't even know what that mode is, and don't know how to switch it off, so it's fun to hang back and watch them get frustrated :)

The space bar. Once a small grove starts to form at the bottom of the space bar I know it's time to buy a new keyboard.

I've lost count of the number of apps that I failed to get working in DOS because I didn't have an [ANY] key on my keyboard. Must be an American special. Not my favourite by any means.
