  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.
