Quick Mac and Windows Keyboard Switching

Since Mac OS X doesn't save profiles for multiple keyboards (which I hope will change in subsequent versions), I had to find a solution for quickly changing between a Windows style keyboard and a Mac style keyboard. After spending some time with Google, I found some AppleScript that seems to provide an adequate solution. For convenience, I made two scripts: one called keyboard_win.scpt that switches the modifier keys on a Windows style keyboard to behave Mac-like, and one called keyboard_mac.scpt that restores the default keyboard behavior for a Mac style keyboard.

(1) keyboard_win.scpt:
(2) keyboard_mac.scpt:
Hopefully, this will save you some time.
