ThinkPad T22 keyboard

I recently bought a ThinkPad T22 on ebay.  I am disappointed to find
that it does not have Windows or application keys on the keyboard. I
use the Windows key on my desktop computer all the time.  I use it
to call up the start menu and I use some of the keyboard shortcuts
built into Windows.  The shortcuts I use with the Windows key are
the Windows key with these keys: E D F and R.

Are all ThinkPads this way?  Are all laptop computers this way?

Is there a replacement internal keyboard I could buy that have these
keys?  Is there any way I can program the lower mouse button to work
as a Windows key?
I used to think that most MDs were incompetent morons.  I was wrong,
they are actually very intelligent and good at what they do which is
make lots of money and get lots of prestige by shoveling enormous
amounts of BS very, very rapidly.

Re: ThinkPad T22 keyboard

IBM has a program that will allow you to reprogram some keys. I use the
right alt key for a windows key. I believe there are a few other
freeware programs that perform the same task also.

If you can't find the IBM program, let me know and I can email it to

Yes.  They don't like Microsoft, and are waiting for linux to take over.

No.  IBM does not acknowledge that Windows is prevalent enough as to warrant
it's own key

Maybe.  I use IBM's keyboard customiser utility, which maps it to the AltGr
key.  I've used it for a year without any conflicts so far.
