I was particularly entranced by the latter, because while I never use the Microsoft custom operating system keys on my keyboards, I always wonder if I might be missing something. Microsoft’s Nick White has a better explanation than the press release as to what they are for:

- Windows Media Start Button: quick access to Windows Media Center in Windows Vista
- Windows Live Call Button: make a call using Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Call
- Gadget Button: launches Live.com for quick access to your personalized Gadgets
So the Windows Live crew has even snuck onto Microsoft keyboards.
