With the Windows machines at work, I've become quite accustomed to rarely (if ever) needing to use the mouse. Windows is, and always has been, very consistent with underlining the letter of the title that activates a specific function in menus. And aside from that, a single, simple tap of alt always brings you to the file menu in any windowed program. I really enjoy the level of two-button keystroke integration in Windows that still is sorely lacking in OS X. Sure, it does have some keystrokes (usually of the command- variety) but you still need to be mousing around quite a bit for full functionality.

    Uh, actually, if you go to System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Keyboard Shortcuts, you can define keyboard shortcuts for accessing the menu, dock, etc. I think the default is control-F2. I'm not sure when this made it in, but it's in my Panther install.
