Surely the Mac keyboard is an abstract concept that Mono doesn't need to
know about? WinForms might be hard coded, but if you were to use one of
the Cocoa bridges, this would be a complete non issue. I think GTK#
From memory, I thought that the Control key (Apple key, or as you say
here "Mac" key) behaved properly last time I tried it in WinForms. As
far as I'm aware, a Mac keyboard maps the virtual key codes in OS X in
reverse if you plug in a non Mac Keyboard (so that the key captions are
correct.) That way the Option key ("Alt" or "Pretzel" on Mac, "Windows"
on PC) and Command ("Apple" on a Mac, "Alt" on PC) were the right way
round. I could be wrong though. I know that Parallels puts them the
Windows way round which totally screws with my head. If not, you can
force that to happen in the Keyboard section of the settings.
