As someone who's just started using a Mac for the first time(*),
I'd like to add that it's not always plain-sailing on an English
keyboard. (Yes, I know in terms of keystrokes it's no more
difficult than on a PC, but it's not *marked*. And I have a great
aversion to remapping keyboards so that they generate characters
other than those on the keycaps.)

(* ... for about fifteen years, when all I wanted it for was
word processing)
