Not all keyboard commands work everywhere
Authored by: monickels on Dec 06, '01 04:05:08PM

It's important to remember that not all of these commands work with all Macs. In reality, this chart should include another column that indicates which work where. This is particularly important when writing troubleshooting tips: you cannot assume that a user can hold down certain keys at startup and go into single-user mode, for example.

It's also important to remember that the wireless keyboard doesn't boot right away so keyboard boot commands like Command-V and Command-S won't work because OSX Aqua will pick up before the keyboard commands do.
