    The unfortunate answer is: "somewhat".

    I easily paired the keyboard via Bluetooth.

    The basic functions of the keyboard work - I am typing this on my Magic Keyboard on a Windows 10 machine.

    There are a few caveats:

    1. The function keys work as function keys - no volume control, no brightness adjustment, etc.
    2. The "fn" key simply does not work - which is very problematic as you can't ctrl-alt-delete on Windows with this keyboard (delete for Windows is actually is fn-delete on this keyboard).

    I even installed the Bootcamp driver for a previous Apple keyboard (AppleKeyboardInstaller64) which did nothing.

    So yes, it works somewhat.
