    Short answer: Yes, it'll work in Vista - just install the bootcamp drivers then pair it in the usual way. Bingo.

    With Fedora, if you're running under something like Fusion or Parallels, then you'll have no problems. If you're dual/triple booting, then it's less clear. I know of Ubuntu users who are using the Apple keyboard without problems, but I'm not clear what the situation is on other distros. The thing to do is to go take a look at the Fedora HCL and see if the apple keyboard is listed.
