    Option out, Cmd in?

    Which is more ergonomic for you, and why?

    I don't know about the order specifically, but using Cmd+shortcuts is more comfortable for me than Ctrl+shortcuts. That's not really due to the keyboard though; Windows could just as easily have used Alt for shortcuts instead of Ctrl.

    I think it's all in what you're use to.

    I had a little bit of trouble getting use to using the :apple: key when I switched, but it now seems natural. I have trouble in Windows, where I never did before.

    With that said, I do think that the placement of the :apple: key makes common shortcuts like cut, copy, and paste than the control key in Windows.
