@mhoye I don't really understand why they didn't just do a mass search&replace from "M-" to "Alt-" 20 years ago. Same with "kill and yank" to "cut and paste"
@Gargron @fraggle It refers to the “meta” key on the Symbolics Lisp Machine’s original “space cadet” keyboard, that IIRC happened to share a keycode Alt and Cmd on later PC and Mac keyboards. https://rcsri.org/collection/symbolics-keyboards/symbolics-keyboard-1.jpg
