I was using DoubleCommand to swap my Command and Option keys on my Logitech K800 Windows keyboard and discovered that the app didn’t record my preferences anymore. Thats when I also discovered that OS X Lion supports key swapping right in the Keyboard preferences pane.
Head over to system preferences, select Keyboard, click Modifier Keys and there you go. Just swap Command and Option. Save it and it will remain forever thus.
This preference allows you to “peek” inside folders when you press space over a folder in Finder during Quick Look. It’s actually quite useful when you try it.
Turn it on:
defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableXRayFolders 1
Turn it off:
defaults write com.apple.finder QLEnableXRayFolders 0
If you use OS X on a Mac Pro, you owe it to yourself and your sanity to get VMWare Fusion. I have plenty of PCs in the house but none of them are hooked up so to have an instance of XP running under OS X like a copy of Word is amazing. I’m finally able to try Chrome, for example, and I actually look forward to getting a Windows virus.
My only concern is that the software won’t run well on smaller machines. As it stands, however, XP is a champ and Vista Ultimate 64-bit installed but was hiccuping a little. I’ll be doing a more in-depth look for CrunchGear.com.
