My mac book pro arrived on Monday and since then I've spent most of my time trying to figure out some settings that I consider to be basic.
- mapping capslock to escape
- swap fn and ctrl
- keyboard shortcut to maximize a window
- keyboard to active/deactive fullscreen
mapping caps lock to escape
I can't believe how difficult this is. In ubuntu this is a simple keyboard setting, but sadly on OSX I had to install some thirdparty software to do this. The tools i used was PCKeyboardHack
swapping fn and ctrl
I am used to having the ctrl key in the bottom left corner of the keyboard so i found it more natural to swap the two keys. To do this i used KeyRemap4Macbook
keyboard shortcut to maximize a window
I'm currently trying this script in combination with quicksilver triggers and mapped to cmd+ctrl+z. So far i'm not liking this setup. I prefer winkey + up on windows or alt + f10 on ubuntu.

To do this follow the instructions here. Unfortunatly, the cmd + escape combination did not work for me so i opted for ctrl+cmd+f
