  1. For the Macintosh version, you can’t *just* replace the Windows key. The “alt” keys on both sides need to be moved outward (away from the space bar) by one key, and the key next to the CTRL key on the right-hand side of the keyboard (what’s it called?) needs to be removed, since it has no purpose under OS X. Finally, it’s not just one Windows key, it’s 2. So that’s 5 different adjustments in total, not just one. Mac users are terribly demanding and picky, so it would make more business sense if the Macintosh version were done right.

    P.S.: Currently typing on an old-school Apple Extended II keyboard right now, which has the same (or similar) mechanical key switches. This one uses the Alps key switches, I believe.


  2. Good point. The posting is incomplete. We will provide option and command keys to replace the ones on the keyboard, on both sides of the space bar.


  3. Hi,

    I use Das Keyboard and Evoluent’s vertical mouse, and just came across this:
    http://www.evoluent.com/kb1.html

    Would it be possible to create a Das Kbd like that? (Or a Das Kbd like Apple’s new kbd’s that don’t include a numerical keypad?)

    That would be so cool! That aside, I love my Das Keyboards 🙂


  4. Fantastic! I’ve been waiting for this. What would be even more fantastic is if you could replace the CapsLock Key by an additional Control (or at least swap CapsLock and Control).


  5. Since we’re on the topic of missing something, the only thing I *really* miss having switched from Microsofoft Natural Kbrd to Das Kbrd is a volume control. I would love a discrete up/down slider alongside Das Kbrd.

    I realize that this is against the spartan design principles that guided the creation of Das Kbrd, but integrated volume is what I really miss, every day – I can’t be the only one!
