Why add a software layer...?
Authored by: ndifranco on Jan 29, '07 06:31:43AM

I'm with savage...the Fn key combination works great for me on my PB 12". I'm always wary of adding additional software to accomplish something that's readily available.

I totally agree. I try to make an effort to use default functionality whenever possible. Like it or not, there's usually a sensible reason for the defaults. Also makes using someelse's mac or moving into a new mac a lot easier in the long run.

When I first switched (from FreeBSD), I tried several software packages to try to "fix" the PB keyboard, but these fixes seem always to take place in the grey zone between supported & unsupported parts of the kernel API, and as a result, are very fragile and frequently do not survive updates or upgrades. When the ability to turn off the d--ned caps-lock function was finally given us by Apple, I got rid of all the add-ins and just live with the standard stuff.
