Well I started off with the iphone then made the mistake of installing Vista on my PC that was less then a year old. Now I posting with my new 24" Imac!! Yea!!! I had a few questions though ... I am a long time PC user and I am a bit lost on how to do everything. I am getting the hang of everything but was wondering if there were any type of cheat sheets for us old time PC users!! Thanks and hope to get a bit more fluent on the imac!!!

PS... I did the Leopard upgrade and went fine but was a bit slow!! 1.5+ hours. :D:D:D

Control is now Command

Control-C was Copy on Windows Command-C is copy on Mac
Command-Q quits an application
Command-W closes an application
Hitting the red X button doesn't quit the application, it closes it.

All programs have streamline short cuts. Apple requires it when developing. A cool trick is that if there is a short cut the key commands will be next to the function in the drop down menus.
