DoubleCommand

There are several things that still bother me about macs/OSX, even though I’ve been enjoying the “switch” for several years.  Two that come to mind are how items are selected with the finder (up/down arrows selecting more items no matter what) and the lack of a “forward delete” (delete keys to the right of the cursor) button.

Enter DoubleCommand.  This kernel extension/system preference allows mapping of keys to functions mostly for dealing with using Windows keyboards on a mac.  I check only one box.  The “Enter key acts as forward delete” option is now my friend.  I can use it for forward delete now.

Maybe someone else should enlighten me on how to fix my beef with finder selections.
