How do people configure their keyboard?

At work, I have a 105 key keyboard (with qwerty and Indic printed on
it, neat).  I selected US layout.  This means that the key between Z
and the left shift key (that's the 105th key) and the key to the left
of 1 do the same thing.

So I changed the key to the left of 1 to do like escape.
I changed escape to do like caps lock.
I changed caps lock to do like ctrl.

So now I have three ctrl keys, a caps lock key available (though at a
weird location), and escape is in an easy to reach spot.

I've heard of people changing caps lock (to the left of A) to do
like escape.

Any other nifty tricks?


PS: On a US keyboard, missing the 105th key, I changed the right
    Windows key to produce ` and ~.
