I recently bought MacBook Air 13″ and struggling with the shortcuts and I have been using windows since I have got the laptop.

I am sure switching to an entirely different OS is little problem. I tried finding on the internet and getting a huge list of shortcuts which I am not sure if I am going to use even once.
