Not at all, baybe I should have got that clearer: I understand that in some env there is a use of the SAK. So first was the annoyance to be "forced by default" to use it. And the other is more the "Is it really important to have to use both hands, just because someone selected these keys". In some cases it could be nice to be able to use just one hand (e.g. I broke mine a while ago, not to mention disabled).

BTW: the spacebar analogy don't fit (WIN does't invented that and I indeed alter my keyboard a lot: get rid of CAPS_LOCK and use it for some extra characters, use the noe Layout etc..)
