This brings up a question I've been meaning to ask Harry, since he
enjoys using Linux on Macs.   When I've got money to buy a laptop to
run Linux on, I was considering getting a Mac; but I wondered how the
three buttons were handled?  Is it by using modifier keys (a la Mac
OS's contextual menus)?  Because if it is, that would modify the
behavior of a few (somewhat rare) programs which depend on one of the
three buttons plus a modifier key.

I was raised on Macs and can be a bit nostalgic - plus, I wouldn't
mind having the ability to test any cross-platform apps I might desire
to write!
