comment Are wireframes indicative of final layout?
+1 to @DA01's comment. It all depends on your team's definition of wireframe.

As the rest of the question points out that is a possible edge case when the user decides to "explore" things; the language of the question makes it clear that it isn't actually known this case would ever actually happen. Your quote is not the question, it is an example work flow of that edge case if only check boxes where used - and that work flow is perfectly sustainable if only check boxes are used. Overcomplicating the UI by swapping selection metaphors remains the lesser of ideal options.

The OP did not say he wishes it to behave as a "select one, deactivate others" - if that is what was meant to be asked, it was asked & answered here: Select multiple options or only one exclusive. The OP asked "what do you think [about switching between check boxes and radio buttons]?", referring to the option as "the ideal thing". To the question asked by the OP: (1) switching is not the ideal thing, and (2) a single pattern works for the described work flow.

This question does not explain why it needs two patterns. The questions points out that multiple options need to be selected, and that the user might want to flip selections for "exploration" at some point. That doesn't explain the need to overly complicate the work flow with two completely different selection patterns, when 1 pattern does the job of both.

You have provided a scenario, but not asked anything related to that scenario. What is your question?

comment Usability problem on Mac due to absence of keyboard symbols
I got the up-arrow/shift figured out, but I still have to guess on if that weird squiggle is 'ctrl' or 'alt'/'option'. Damn you Apple! Without asking Apple directly, I think it comes down to their design aesthetics -- Jony Ive just didn't like the way it looked on the keyboard.
