As the super key is the windows key on windows,  people may not realise
that the windows key works in Linux and is called the super key.  if you
press the windows key on windows the start menu pops up straight away, 
with linux the super key is pressed there is a delay,  the fact there is
a delay (good thing and i guess reasons for this ) may make people think
it does't do anything.
