there are a few ways... apple + shift + 3 capture the whole screen, apple + shift + 4 will give you a crosshair to select what you want to screenshot, and apple + shift + 4 (and then after pressing 4, press space) will let you screen shot a selected window... choose your option (oh, btw if you wanna lend me some rep that would be cool) (also I am hammered drunk right now and could hardly type this...)

oh btw, windows does blow

Can you reprogram the keys? Apple+Shift+4+Space seems a little ridiculous to capture a window.

I can do it with one hand and without even thinking about it. You don't hit the SPACE till later. You hit APPLE+Shift+4 then point at the window you want and hit Space and it highlights it.

I can do it faster than I can even say the keys out loud.
