    Just wondering if people are used to the OS X keyboard shortcuts yet... I still frequently try to get a new folder with command-N...

    And does anyone ever use the 'Go to Folder' command in the Finder? And if you do... did you come from *nix?

    I still use the old command+tab to switch programs, and i've gotten used to command+shift+n for a new folder. Took a while, and a couple of new windows, before i got that last one though :)

    Another use for the keyboard is renaming files. Instead of having to click on them, i just arrow-key to them, hit return, and type away. Not a hot-key, i know, but useful nonetheless.

    Commnad + K is a very useful one for conecting to servers.:)

    The one that stil gets me sometimes is Command + M is minimize now...Command + L creates an alias.

    I'm still amazed at the awesome power of the "option" key. :D

    Just fiddle around in the Finder and do all sorts of stuff with Option held down. You may be surprised! The OS X Missing Manual book has been a gold mine in regards to keyboard shortcuts. (And that's about all I've read so far, hehe.)
