Some letters are used more often than others and not surprisingly these are the keys that break or wear out. Keyboards might last longer if the most commonly used ones (ETAOIN SHRDLU) and probably the space bar were made of stronger stuff.

       my board is missing buttons found amid "Q" and "R" making many things difficult to say, similar to a book homophonous to "LMNOP" that I highly laud. If only this board had had structural support as you so tout!
