I have been using AHK for my keymapping needs in Windows for years, but note PKL is also popular, especially on this forum. The two programs offer similar capabilities, both offering quick and easy portable remapping capabilities. The main difference seems to be that AHK is more flexible, as you can program and combine arbitrary scripts, whereas PKL is more focused on its core functionality of keyboard remapping.
For our purposes, there's not a lot of difference between them, so it may be down to simple preference. But on the face on it, AHK seems to me to be the better option, down to it's sheer flexibility! Is there a reason to use PKL over AHK that I have missed? What is the reason for the PKL love?
