I guess it would matter to someone who started using the old pre-PS2 keyboards or on an actual typewriter, though. The parents learned on (and still have) their mechanical typewriters, and have had a difficult time moving to an actual keyboard.
There's times when I wonder if they're looking for the fraction keys.
Edit: Course there's sometimes when I *wish* they still had fraction keys.
