Question on #HaikuOs: why are my Alt and Control keys switched in functionality?

Answer is from #haiku irc channel archive ~ [21:22:22] :
MacOS heritage.. inspect a classic and modern Mac keyboard
Command keys where Alt is usually found on a PC keyb
BeOS keymap emulated a Mac keyboard using a PC keyboard
you can switch them if you prefer Ctrl as your shortcut key:
preferences/keymap there's a big button
