ergonomic. Unix offers a different (and far better) mindset than DOS
and Windows. Consequently, the keybindings will often be different
because of logical design decisions beased upon years of experience.
For instance, Windows generally uses ^V to ``paste''. In the Unix world,
this is generally a ``verbatim'' prefix. In general, avoid the arrow
keys (and the keypad in general) and you're experiences with Unix
of all flavors will be enriched.
