I couldn't fight the urge any longer. I finally purchased my first MBP and should receive it Wednesday. Coming from windows, does anyone know of any good guides to keyboard shortcuts or just shortcuts in general? anything awesome i should know about that the average user wouldn't?

thanks in advance

Welcome fellow macuser to the cult. A great application to help you with keyboard shortcuts is CheatSheet. Good Luck!

Sorry, looking at the list, it seems pretty basic. My bad. It's a poor choice.

still helpful, thanks!

from what ive seen, the functions are pretty much the same with the exception of replacing the "ctrl" key on windows to the "command" key on os x?

Check out:

BetterTouchTool - gives more control over multi-touch gestures and more gestures.

BetterSnapTool(in app store) - I use it to give more control over the red/yellow/green buttons, but can also give you the snap feature of Windows if you liked it.
