. The sad part is that as I was reading the article, I kept nodding my head and thinking of the Windows equivalent for each one of his Macintosh shortcuts.

Sad? What's sad is that I knew all of his shortcuts and also know a bunch more (for Windows).

For fun try out Ctrl+Shift+F10 or Ctrl+Shift+Esc

If I was mean I'd say give Alt+F4 a try. :)

You pick up a few of the keyboard shortcuts when working with servers that lost the mouse for some reason and you don't feel like fixing that problem before fixing the problem that brought you the the server's console in the first place.

It is a point of honor with me to avoid using the mouse for mundane tasks. I think I picked up this habit from real-time strategy games. In fact, I'm almost sure of it.

Yet one more way that gaming has improved my job performance and, indeed, my life.


The shortcuts above do "right mouse (context sensitive) click", opens the Task Manager (might be NT-based only), and the last one closes the foreground program/document.
