comment Why is there no standard layout for computer keyboards?
The original shape of the Enter/Return key was like a mirror image L, the same as the arrow on the key. I do, however, agree that in the OP's image (the top image in your answer) the key doesn't have enough horizontal space allocated to it. Also, I do use the context key, it is useful when you don't want to move your hand to the mouse or if the mouse events were blocked.

comment “I agree” check box or buttons
How about a percentage scrollbar so users can select level of agreement i.e. "I agree with 60% of the terms" :-) Now seriously, the [I Do Not Agree] button throws the user out the process with some kind of "You can not continue without agreeing" notice, whereas the checkbox prevents clicking on the [Finish] button until it is checked. UX-wise a single [I Agree] button would be better, however, you should consult with your lawyer about the legal side of this.

comment What are the negative and positive aspects of dark color scheme?
@AndreFigueiredo I didn't say anything about the whole, I said there are cases of each: "each will require a different (opposing) theme".

comment Why do we say UX for User Experience rather than UE?
XML (eXtensible Markup Language) predates Windows XP (1997 vs 2001) and uses the same abbreviation rule.
