My guess would be to lock the use of things like the "windows" key so you don't accidentally press it.

You remove the key cap that's adjacent to the one you want to lock, then slide the key stopper underneath the key cap you want locked.

I do not like that key layout. Stupid Euro keyboards...

They make US ones too, you know.

That said, I switched from the UK to US keyboard layout originally in order to use my tenkeyless Filco. Also makes it easy to find older stuff when you use the US layout.

There's not much different. No £ key, and @ and " are swapped. and # and ` are i think.

I know. I don't like the UK layout.

There's not too many differences, but they make a world of difference.
Tiny left shift, oddly placed \ key,
Giant enter key, and like you said, the @ and # aren't where the US counterparts are.

The return key is what got me, but I can switch between them relatively easily. I do have a preference for the US layout because I prefer the return key and longer left shift. The mapping of characters to physical keys is largely incidental as far as I am concerned, unless it's something bat**** like the AZERTY layout where the numbers on the top row require you to press shift to access them, that said, I get annoyed when I have to use a machine with the UK mapping because my own computers, and my account on college computers is set to the US layout.
