comment Going from Windows to Mac - Want identical hotkeys
I still think you guys are missing the point. If I learn Cmd+Q to quit applications on the Mac, then I will inevitably hit Win+Q to try to close applications on Windows. This hurts productivity. I don't think you guys are realizing the speed at which I can navigate on Windows. This is something maybe only developers would understand--for a Unix user it would be like switching from vi to pico/nano and vice versa. When people see me using a Windows computer, their usual first response is: "How did you do that? What in heck are you pushing?"

I will try QuickSilver, and changing System Preferences, I'll let you know my results.

comment Going from Windows to Mac - Want identical hotkeys
I think you are missing my issue. My productivity on Windows is at a point where it cannot get any better, development in Visual Studio 2010 with standard Windows hotkeys. Learning hotkeys on Mac will "de-learn" my hotkeys on Windows and lower productivity on both OS's. Why would anyone learn both when you can tailor one to match the other? If I learn Cmd+Tab to switch apps, this would cause me to mistakenly hit Win+Tab to switch apps in windows (which doesn't work at all on XP).

Right, what I'm looking for is a way to make Alt+Tab and all the other stuff to work at the same time. I'm going to be switching back and forth Windows/Mac constantly, so 2 different key shortcut sets are not a good option. Is there a way to change. I think there are placing in XCode/MonoDevelop where I can modify Ctrl+Arrows.
