Some keyboard questions.

I've been thinking about keyboard issues again. I'm real close to up and ordering a batch of custom keyboards. But before I finalize my design, I'd like some feedback on your keyboard usage.

Pldease elaborate on your answers in comments and stuff.

Personally, I don't use the function keys, I don't use Caps Lock, I don't use the Numeric keypad, and I don't use the Insert key.

If you do use the function keys, how and why? Is there some application-specific binding that you use, or is there some cross-application binding that's become popular? For instance, F1 is usually a Help key, and F11 seems to sometimes full-screen various applications. Or is it that you rebind them yourself to something useful? If so, what?
