To say the truth, whilst I'm quite satisfied from the old keyboard, I'm not very happy of the bowl-effect: every two weeks I have to clear the dirt with a vacuum cleaner and a brush. The new one seemed the kind of keyboard easier to clean and such. So I bought it.
One: 35 megabytes of system update? To remap ten keys? Bzuh?
Two: writing is quite easy. I was used to stomp on the keyboard like a hammer, but a couple of years of typing on the PowerBook probably calmed me down. Oh, well.
Three: the apple symbol on the command key is no more there. This thing caused a little turmoil among Apple fans. Personally, I didn't notice it... but I noticed (after only two years of working on OSX) that I can change the modifiers keys all at once. And incidentally make the behaviour identical to Windows modifier keys set. D'oh.
(there's always a 'but' somewhere)
Probably because I'm such a luser:
On to Google to search for a solution...
EDIT: found it and solved, even without googling around. I'm not saying it, because it's really embarrassing. Only a hint: I should have looked closer at the keyboard other than the preferences.
