    To this day I still don't get the symbol? Frankly them saying alt or option would be easier than the funky symbol...I mean the least they could do is put the symbol on the key with the rest of it. I see a lot of room for it on the button.

    Well I think it's supposed to be a forked path... as in 2 options - hence the option key.

    I remember it took me a while to realize ^ was supposed to mean the control key. Since you actually can make a ^ with shift+6, I always thought it wanted me to do that. XD
