When you have both Windows, macOS and Linux, keyboard layout is in the way.

    Except you’re used to it after more than 4 year consistent switching.

    I don’t even bother with mouse sensitivity. I just know mac’s slow, most Linux is medium and my windows is always sonic fast.

    Kinda funny how you said both and still be correct. Mac is the odd one out.

    I use both american and italian layouts to the point I just alt-shift, use an accented letter from the italian keyboard, alt-shift back to the american layout. Kinda fun, freaks out non-devs

    First thing I have to do on any Mac I use daily is grab Karabiner to fix the crappy "oohhh look at me I'm special" Mac keyboard mapping, and run some hacky commands to set the mouse sensitivity.

    @piratefox About language layouts, I used 4 languages; and all are different, not only from macOS, but also from Linux (and in Linux, you can choose input engine).

    But that is not a problem to me. My problem is mostly Ctrl vs Cmd vs Shift+Ctrl vs position of these keys.

    Windows​ - Ctrl fn Win Alt / Alt Ctrl

    macOS - fn Ctrl Alt Cmd / Cmd Alt

    When I install Linux on my Mac, I customize mapping to

    Linux on Mac - fn Ctrl Alt Cmd / Ctrl Alt

    But that of course doesn't fix everything.
