Speaking of switching there is a very interesting discussion going on in a holly grail of Windows, the PCWorld NZ discussion forums with regards to "alternative platforms"

My annoyance has always been the inconsistency of the keyboard shortcuts. Somewhere, someone has lost their way.

Chief among my many examples are how system-wide shortcut keys can be used by applications, like Cmd-H for Hide, unless you're using photoshop, when you have to also hold down Ctrl. Why aren't the system commands (minimize, hide, dictionary, etc..) all on a common set of modifiers. That would be quite nice. Like Fn-M for minimize, though I don't know if the non-notebook keyboards have a Fn key. (I think Windows got it right with the Windows key on this one)

(yes, I know i can re-define them in sysprefs, but then the second i sit down on a new mac, i look like an idiot)
