I am curious about this. I never use the right hand of the keyboard number keys when I need to type numbers. I always use the numbers at the top of the keyboard. The only time I use the right hand side is if I need special characters, such as a £ symbol. So far as I am concerned, it could be chopped off the keyboard, along with the rest of the keys off the qwerty area, except the delete key and arrows. Whereas, R uses the right hand side all the time for numbers. How about you? Which do you use? Oh, and I just thought I would try one of the poll thingies, but you can answer in comments.
