I have been fed up with windows for a long time ago, so I moved to linux. But one thing from windows haunts me still, and that is the "windows key". In most linux distribution if you press it nothing happens, which is a waste of keyboard space. So why not make it work?
Some new distributions like Sabayon Linux make it work with a little hack; they add a command to kde startup folder that does this:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 115=Menu'Elegant and simple. I found a few other online tips, so you can also try one of these commands:
xmodmap -e 'keycode 115 = Super_L' xmodmap -e 'keycode 116 = Super_R'or
xmodmap -e 'keycode 115 = EuroSign cent'
Cherry is the only company which makes linux keyboards. Check them out at these links: link 1 and link 2.
You can even buy online one of these keyboards for 22 pounds, this is the lowest price I found online.
