    Why did Apple get rid of the Apple on the command key? It was way cooler than it just saying "command" like a Windows computer...

    Very good question, I really liked it....I still call it the "Apple button" out of habit, plus then anyone using the machine knows with a quick.

    I guess it makes keyboards more universal, but who really cares? If someone is running Linux or Windows on a Mac, I'm sure they can figure out what they Apple button equals in Windows)


    But not a huge issue at the end of the day

    There's a very interesting write-up about the history of the Apple key here which explains pretty much everything :)
