Are there still keyboards with special modifiers like e.g. a Meta key? If so do they work with current OSs?

  • Note, the "meta" key exists on many keyboards, often labeled as the "windows" key, at least when interpreted by puTTY and the X server. – Darth Android Jun 8 '11 at 21:05

    The "Windows" key is actually Super, but some software may choose to interpret it as Meta instead. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 9 '11 at 1:06

Some foreign-language keyboards have special keys that the OS may be able to remap to arbitrary modifiers, including but not limited to Meta, Hyper, AltGr, and more.
