    For that matter...even if its not USB -> Bluetooth, it still works.

    Not the ancient Apple keyboards though

    Press the EJECT button on the mac keyboard will eject the CDROM tray in that PC?

    no, your roof will pop up, then your seat will jettison you out your room. destination unknown...

    duh...

    all these need programs... normal 104 keyboard aka the alphabets and the numbers with the slash keys, bracket keys are universal.

    your question is like asking if put a microsoft keyboard into mac, can i use the my document/my pictures/my music key? no, cos mac doesn't have these shortcuts installed. unless you install a program to enable the keys...

    Needed to install Mac drivers for that.

    Wonder if it's possible to install Mac drivers on normal PC.
    Anyway, the Print Screen button is not available on the Mac keyboard, FYI
