Windows to Mac tips part 3: switching between apps

If you're used to alt-tab on Windows, then you can use cmd-tab on MacOSX to switch between applications. Note that Windows switches between all open windows for each application, whereas the Mac only switches between applications.

There are more MacOSX keyboard shortcuts on the Apple support site.
