Feature Comparison: KeyJack for OS X vs Ergodex Manager for Windows

KeyJack, a separate program for the DX1, is being bundled with the DX1 and sold by Solitude Northwest.  The DX1 already includes Ergodex Manager which enables the DX1 to run on Windows 2000/sp3-4, and XP/sp2-3.  (Ergodex Manager does not support Vista at this time.)  KeyJack is software developed and supported by PolyMicro Systems, and enables the DX1 to run on Mac OS X v 10.4 and above. The user has the option to install the DX1 on a Windows or Mac system or both.  Accordingly, each presents a unique interface and functions somewhat differently depending on whether you are using the DX1 on a Mac or PC.
