If you are like me and just bought a Mac coming from ages of Windows you might be having an hard time loosing all your habits and learning to walk again.

Today I found a reference to a post of one year ago that compared how the easy things are done on a Mac and on a PC: things like what the "Apple" key is used for, why when you click on the "X" in the application bar the window is not closed but only "hidden", why there is no "Delete" key, how to install an app, and so on.

I still have to understand how to emulate the "home" or "end" keys on my MacBook keyboard tho.

Here is the nice post: Hack Attack: A guide for switching to a Mac.

I once figured out how to get the home/end keys to work on a Mac like they do on Windows, but I really can't say that I advise trying this: if you do, you'll find yourself very frustrated the next time you try to use someone else's Mac.

By the way, in case you have not discovered this, yet, the "Windows-style" home is Apple-LeftArrow, and end is Apple-RightArrow.

Thank you David for the tip... it works :)
But on the new Macs the Apple logo on the Command key has been removed, so the Apple key doesn't exist any more :(
