    I know its proper name is the command key... but I noticed where the new keyboard hurts the most. On his G3 iMac he will occasionally forget how to get out of a program or some other simple thing. I usually shout the correct keyboard shortcut for what he is looking for and he finds it. (usually quitting)

    Tonight I let him play on my new iMac.... thats when it got interesting. He was all lost because his :apple: was gone. He was a little annoyed (in a very cute way) about it. I guess Apple didnt think of the young ones when taking that apple off the key. To him command means nothing. We'll see how he does later... :D I just think its easier to tell a 5 year old to use ":apple: - Q" instead of "Command -Q." Having that in an elementary classroom is probably a life saver.

    Anyone else run into a similar situation or other annoyances with it missing? (if you have a new keyboard anyway)

    Apple IIs had both open-apple and closed-apple keys, which made it a bit harder for kids who were learning to use them. Having one apple is better then zero or two.
