Just discovered my sis' T42 doesn't have "windows" keys

But I never use them.
So I'm wondering, how often do you use those keys?

Every hour, if you mean the keys with the win flags. Vital for shortcuts.

No sweat. You can remap some other key like Capslock (which even fewer people use) to function as Winkey.
