    This has all appearances of being a production line issue - to wit: if your bike was produced on A or C shift you got two metal keys and one plastic key.

    Last year we went ahead (after some sticker-shock coughing and gagging) and upgraded all of our daily use computers to W7 Professional. Thus my memories of XP are steadily fading.
