Does this ship with Command and Option keys? It's annoying that Mac users are so ignored here for keyboards, and there usually no information about Mac key options.

Das makes a separate product for Mac, which isn't offered in this drop:

The Command and Option keycaps aren't the only difference. Some of the keys have entirely different functions (e.g. Eject instead of Insert), and there is only one indicator light for caps lock, instead of three lights for caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock.
Fwiw, I'm a Mac user myself, and I prefer Windows keyboards. I've purchased seven Windows keyboards to date, and I haven't had a compatibility issue. I simply remap the keys as needed and they all work great. I've found that I would actually prefer not to have a Mac-specific keyboard because manufacturers tend to assume that Mac users want things like an Eject key or F keys with pre-assigned functions like activating Dashboard, which I personally don't use. Windows keyboards are generally consistent, so I can just use the same remapping scheme for all of them.
I did try purchasing a Mac-specific keyboard from Massdrop once, but the quality was so poor that I returned it. That may just have been an exception, but so far my experience with Windows keyboards has been much better.
