I am using Logitech Cordless Desktop at work and really enjoy using Wave keyboard, so I decided to buy one at home. I bought K350(since it's the latest and greatest, unifying) and used it on my PC for a while, then plugged it in my Mac... and am now having the same problem. Since K350 is described as Wave-with-Unifying feature, regression like this is really ridiculous... I'm really disappointed with Logitech for the first time. I was loyal to this company since the first ball mouse i bought from them (It is still working by the way I only bought Logitech for my peripherals for like 10 years. Come on, Logitech, do you really want to lose such a loyal customer, just because your Mac driver hacker is too lazy to fix this? You are not even giving a WORKAROUND to swap option-cmd keys? I just can't believe it's Logitech!
I would even agree to beta-test fixed firmware/driver.

Yikes, that's pretty bad. I used to have Logitech for all of my peripherals. I have a Performance Mouse MX working on my Mac beautifully, albeit the Logitech drivers are miserable and I ended up using USB Overdrive. I have a relatively old Microsoft keyboard on my Mac *shudders* and love the feel of the K350. I don't want to get a Wave keyboard and take up another USB slot with another dongle.
I wonder if there are any keyboards that will be Mac-supported and feature the unifying receiver technology in the pipeline? Switching modifier keys is pretty basic. Was really eyeing this thing until I did a little research about its compatibility with Mac.

Same problem here. Loyal Logitech customer for years, but can't get the cmd-option keys to switch on the Mac on the Wave keyboard with or without the Logitech driver installed.
I am still using a good old Logitech trackball as my "mouse." It works sometimes temporarily to change the keyboard modifier keys, but it doesn't stick. I haven't firgured out the exact pattern, but when it does work, it is when I unplug the USB trackball receiver, change the modifier keys, and plug in the trackball USB again.
Any ideas on how to get a permanent cmd-option switch would be appreciated!

Have Wave Pro wireless keyboard and mouse. Been using it on my Win7 box. Hooked it up to my MBP (OS X 10.6.4) only to discover that LCC doesn't see any Logitech devices. E-mailed support - answer they sent back was that there is no driver availalbe for mac and it's not supported.
So, you make a keyboard, you put Apple/Mac specific printing on some of the keys, and then tell users there's no mac driver - what the...
Like many others here, been loyal Logitech user for many, many years. I'm switching to Mac, so I guess I'll have to get an apple keyboard. At least it was good to hear people aren't having issues with Performance MX mouse.
Anyone at Logitech listening?

There is an option to swap keys in keyboard preferences, but it worked only on my mac pro, not macbook pro.
A better solution is a freeware program KeyRemap4Macbook. You can remap almost any key with it. One problem though. Fn key cannot be remapped to option, like it is on Cordless Wave.

Here's a "reliable" way I've found to change the modifier keys every time I connect my K350:
1) Unplug the USB pointing device
2) Go into keyboard -> modifier keys -> switch option and command keys
3) Hit Command-W to close window (to confirm swap worked)
4) Plug back in the USB pointing device
5) Go into keyboard -> modifier keys -> switch option and command keys
6) Hit Command-W to close window (to confirm swap worked)
Unfortunately, this doesn't "permanently" remember the switch so if you unplug your K350 from the MacBook Pro (e.g. to go to a meeting), you have to repeat this sequence to swap the keys again once everything is hooked up again.
Hope this helps since it does't look like Logitech is going to,
