Cntrl vs cmd: Sure enough, but the alt and option keys can also drive you nuts especially on keyboard models with the damn windows button that shifts the alt key (option on mac) over one. Just plug in a Mac keyboard to the PC and it solves that problem at least.
After years working on Macs, getting used to the pinky thing for cntrl on the PC seemed hard at first but now that I'm used to it and looking back, the cntrl way is the better way - to much finger crossing the Mac way. Its one of the few things that Microsoft got right before Apple did (or should I say before Xerox did)

The mouse moves differently on a PC too. The Mac implementation is elegant with a really good accel/decel. The PC feels a little molasses-like when you first get going on it. You do get used to it but I prefer the Mac for this.

The best part though about moving to PC (apart from building a kick*ss machine for 1/3 the cost of the equiv mac) is that you have a world of graphics cards at your finger tips now. Welcome to the Dark Side. That's not breathing you hear, its the fan trying to cool 24 cores!
