Should add the following:
The Matias is designed for the Mac OS and has a whole lot of
dedicated OS X functionality with fn+key combinations. I have used it
on a Mac Mini for which I have a dual-boot Ubuntu 14.04. I
primarily use that computer with linux and much of the fn-key
combinations aren't read the same way in Linux. There's
essentially an embedded keypad with fn when booted in linux.
