First Impression of a Hackintosh

After installing Mac OS X on my MSi Wind U100-279US, I have tried to use it for a lot of different things. One thing I have noticed is that the "Alt" key is mapped to the "Open Apple" key, while the "Windows" key is unmapped. which is kind of weird. For me, it would be more logical to map the "Windows" key to the "Open Apple" key. And that's quite evident when you use Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2. When connecting remotely to a Windows machine, the "Alt" key no longer works, while the "Windows" key is mapped to "Alt". How strange is that? If "Windows" key has been mapped to the "Open Apple" key, and leaving the "Alt" key alone, Remote Desktop Connection would work perfectly with the "Alt" Key.

My good friend, Sasha, solved this problem for me this morning. I've documented how to perform this swap in the "Swapping the Windows Key and the Alt Key on Mac OS X" TrackBack below.

Title: Swapping the Windows Key and the Alt Key on Mac OS X
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: Running Mac OS X on the MSi Wind U100 netbook with the Windows and Alt keys mapped the way they are really bugs me. The Alt key is mapped to the Mac's Command key, while the Windows key is mapped to the Mac's Option key. That doesn't make sense at all. You'll immediately notice that if you try to ru . . .
