Option... Command... Alt... Windows...


One of the first things I installed on my Mini was a program called DoubleCommand. Because I am using a Logitech G15 keyboard from the PC world on my Mini, and by default OS X maps the Alt key to the Option key and the Windows Key to the Apple key, everything is backwards!

This little program (actually a kernel extension) allows you to remap the Alt and Windows keys so that they correspond to the Command and Option keys on an Apple keyboard.

It can actually re-map and fiddle with the keyboard in various other ways as well but the main reason I installed it was so that the keyboard feels like a real Apple keyboard.

Lastly, the best thing about this app is that it's free and open source!
