    I've looked everywhere for the Mac OS X equivalent of the ctrl-backspace command (or alt-backspace) in Windows, which deletes the word to the left (or right) of the cursor on my . Does such a thing exist in Mac Pro land? I went to the Apple store and the guy there showed me that option-delete works on a MacBook Pro but it doesn't work on my Mac Pro. Why should the hardware matter anyway. I'm perplexed? Thx.

    phased to this universe
    Option delete works on my bluetooth and my wired keyboard connected to my Mac Pro (early 2008 ver)

    Yup. OPTION DELETE does it in OSX on any mac.
