    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)
