There's a really great firmware for the Teensy 2.0 that enables ADB > USB HID conversion.

I'm typing this from my NeXT ADB keyboard!

It's not perfect, partly because I'm using a QWERTZ keyboard and partly because the built-in keymap is appropriate for an Apple Extended Keyboard II.

The Command bar returns keycode 64, which seems to be right on for Left Super.  This is one of the things I was specifically after for my Hackintosh build!  8)

Forked (NeXT-specific) firmware here: https://github.com/juddy/tmk_keyboard (I'll be hacking on this)

I used a female ADB socket from an old Supermac keyboard.  A female s-video header will work (if you can find one)
