Apple also got the habit to give it's own special names to some keys:

  • ctrl is called, well, control. So far, so good.
  • the alt key (with a funy sign under it) is called option.
  • the key with a funny sharp and the Apple logo is called command (for we are supposed to be so creative Apple users I think), or sometimes more logically apple.
