Comment on shortcuts show
There is an Alt/Tab alternative on a Mac (sort of).
I switched from a PC to a Mac about a year ago and (like yourself) had a lot of trouble with the keyboard shortcuts, especially Alt/Tab. But I discovered that Apple/Tab does almost the same thing. The problem is it allows you to toggle through the programs that are running but not all the open windows. So you can switch from Firefox to Word but you can't switch between multiple documents within Word or multiple windows within Firefox. This is an error I make to this day (in fact, I made it two minutes ago flipping among spreadsheets in Excel).

Comments on Mac/PC
I heard Rafe on Buzz the other day, wishing for an automatic updater.
I thought I'd let you know that VersionTracker Pro (uh, owned by CNet)
is that. It is a paid service, that is supposed to update your
software for you. I heard that recently the service has been sketchy
(since CNet), but I don't have it so that's unconfirmed.
I thought this might be an interesting topic, i.e, 'Helpful programs
that run in the background and make computing easier but aren't
flashy'. I recently discovered Growl, which adds services to lots of
other little Mac programs- adding notes and notifications.
I heard that you guys were having problems remembering keyboard shortcuts for the Mac.
I use KeyCue? 4.3. All you do is hold the control key and it'll tell you all the shortcuts you can perform depending on the current program you are in.
