I currently have a Samsung USB keyboard on my Mac (got it
from Novak in a swap) as the Mac is not in the same room
as the PC with the M$ Natural Pro.  It works fine with the
Mac--the "Windows" key is the splat/command key.  So if the
adaptor works, then it should work on the Mac.

(Aside, anyone know if they make something like the type M
that's a little quieter?  I seem to be really sensitive to
that keybounce frequency that the keyboard puts out.)

The advantage of the M$ keyboard (other than the shape) is
that M$ has an app/extension that allows you to swap key
locations and program the "internet buttons" under both
OS X and OS 9.
