I work on Linux all day long but I have Macs at home.  I'm always 
finding myself by habit hitting shift+home or shift+end by accident on 
the Mac, which doesn't select to the beginning/end of the line but to 
the beginning/end of the whole document - which is really annoying.  
Instead, it's something like shift+command+left or shift+command+right 
on Macs (if I can remember right). 

I thought I'd search the web to see if you can map the keys on a Mac to 
work like a PC... and I found something from LifeHacker.  Woohoo!  Can't 
wait to try this out -

Looks like LifeHacker has another recent article explaining the simple 
things that PC->Mac switchers find themselves beating their heads over 
at first:

I think you might find those articles useful.
