Laptop Keyboards--No Two Alike

I am visiting my parents and using my mother's laptop. It is a full-sized machine, so the keyboard is not particularly cramped, but it is always a discomforting adjustment to use an unfamiliar laptop, since the layout of certain crucial keys always differs. Since I am a fairly aggressive user of standard Windows keyboard shortcuts (End, Home, Alt-Tab, Esc), this probably affects me a bit more than the average user.

  1. Think that is diffuicult. Try switching back and forth between Windows and Mac. The command key is next to the space bar is and most analoagous to the control key in windows. (command - c to copy, ...). That really screws you up.
