Many commands are the same, just that you replace CTRL with CMD.

The @ is made via OPTION+L instead of AltGr+Q as an example of a different shortcut.

The ones I use all the time are Command-W to close an open window, and Command-Q to quit a running application.

The list simsaladimbamba posted is pretty cool. I've been using Macs for a while now and saw quite a few shortcuts in there that I hadn't seen before.
