Linux folks often call this the "Special" key (perhaps a subtle
reference to the logo vis a vis that Olympics <g>).
You can trap it with rawKeyDown - its value on Ubuntu (and likely
elsewhere; I just happen to be using Ubuntu at the moment) is 65515.
PS: There are some stickers available through System 76 and others which
make a great cover for that key, so rather than pressing a Windows key
in Ubuntu you can press an Ubuntu logo key. :)
PPS: Yes, fanboy that I am my laptop's Special key has such a sticker.
