What the hell is SUPER key in that right side help?

Hi there. I wonder if i'm the only noob that tried every key to see what the hell Super key means in that right side text help (looking great, really).

I'm spanish, maybe we call it different.

Hi darkgaze smile

The Super key is sometimes referred to as the Windows key. Actually, it is nearly always referred to as the Windows key, but I could not bring myself to name it as that big_smile

Note: some keyboards do not feature the key.

Maybe I'm wrong, but at linux this key is always referred as super. At least I've always read this way.

No 'windows key'?  I assume you have a aspire netbook?  In any case, I think keyboard bindings can be located in the rc.xml file.  Maybe you could bind the Home key (Super-L) as the 'Windows' key? ;)

Edit: Perhaps an openbox config expert will emerge? Maybe config ninja would be another good nickname for someone.  ;)

I've seen it referred to as the super key a lot as well in the *nix world. Maybe we need to rename it the "Redmond Key".

@darkgaze: Maybe you could use the fn key for mapping (at least the keys that have no fn function).
