What is "a Linux box" ?

I have, right in front of me, 2 computers, both running Linux 
(UbuntuStudio 12.10:

1. A Dell, Optiplex 745 connected to a Genius keyboard, which has, 
bottom-left,

    CTRL, WINDOWS, ALT

The WINDOWS key seems to do nothing.

2.  And HP Compaq connected to an Apple Keyboard, which has, bottom-left.

    CTRL, ALT, APPLE

The APPLE key seems to do nothing.

For the sake of argument; in my school I have quite a number of 
ill-assorted old computers
running Linux, all connected to KeyNeeds specialist learning keyboards 
that have no
modifier keys beyond SHIFT and CAPS-LOCK.

I honestly think that it is rather difficult to predict what "a Linux 
box" may have connected to it.

Richmond.
