@Mecki: The Mac convention of putting the menu at the top of the screen was indeed more effective when it was first designed. However, it no longer works so well in the world of multiple monitors. I have 3 monitors at work, and getting to the menubar can be quite a journey. (Especially when the cursor snags on the edges of differently-sized screens.)

Ejector seat lever next to windshield washer? Try Cmd-Q and Cmd-W in Mac OS. Gets me every so often. Alt-F4 -- much more sensible. (But both operating systems have window close and minimise/resize buttons next to each other on the window frame.) Ctrl/Cmd-C and V (Copy and Paste) is also a dangerous pair. Copy clears your clipboard buffer, with no undo. @Elwin: Regarding the Reset button -- we were informed by German clients that the Reset button is a legal requirement on all German websites, for forms that ask for personal information. For data protection reasons apparently. (Bonkers.)
