The Amiga keys are mapped to the Windows keys.

To anyone buying a new keyboard:

be careful, some new keyboards (inc. M$ ones) DO NOT have a right windows key, as I found out after buying 2 off the net, luckily my adaptor hardware has an option to swap the windows keys with the alt keys...

I don't know if UAE has this but it will probably need it in the future...

The Amiga keys are also mapped to Insert and Home.

Same thing here... I'm still using the keyboard from my very first PC. It's a Cherry keyboard from 1993. That was quality... not like the cheap ones you can buy today.

In a thrift store, I found a lot of original IBM keyboards for mere pennies each. I bought them all and they are all piled up in my closet. With these beasts, I can slam my anger down on the keys when I am pissed and it takes the abuse without a flinch. It's heavy, it's durable, and it's built to last (a fad so outdated, it barely even exists these days). And once cleaned up and looking showroom new, there is no finer keyboard.

'tis why I love the replacment kbd my A4K came with. Heavy, physicaly durable, and almost indestructable. But the ink's begining to wear off after a decade of corrosive sweating - piss po' really... sigh.
