Probably not, but a group wants the caps lock key removed from keyboards.
I believe they'll solve the crisis in the Middle East right after they accomplish that goal. :-)
"Hintjens, the CEO of iMatix, has launched the Capsoff organization in a campaign urging hardware manufacturers to ditch the oft-abused and misused key.
