One keyboard shortcut that is not on that Apple page:
(don't know why they would leave it out)

Control Option Command Eject: Shutdown

I use it all the time. XD

...I also plan to use it someday as a prank to my friends. XD XD

There's no such thing as an Apple key. It's called Command.
Oh right, now it's much clearer! I couldn't find that weird "Apple Key" anyway! :)

Actually it isn't quite pointless. It's useful for people with color perception disorders or if you work long hours in front of the screen, inverting the colors can relax the eyes.

For advanced features regarding this color inversion, see this app.

Ever read your manual?

Ever read any of Apple's support docs?

Knowing the correct name helps. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, sure, but don't go into a florist and ask for a dozen thorny flowers for valentines day. You'll just get laughed at."

That's not very nice :p

Before you guys do it, I should warn you that it shuts down your computer.

What, "Shut Down" isn't sufficiently clear and self-explanatory? ;p

(From what I observe, generally, people say "close" or "quit" when it comes to apps
but usually only use the term "shut down" when it comes to the whole computer.)

Oh, and about the prank thing, I was just kidding... or was I now? XD

Actually, it's strange.
Mac keyboards have all the modifier keys clearly labeled with their names:
option, control, shift, etc. (in contrast to PC keyboards, which uses weird abbreviations like "ctrl" and "alt")

And yet, for THE most important modifier key of the Mac keyboard, they don't label it;
they just put an Apple on one side and a cloverleaf thingger on the other.

Well, there are so many names.... in many German Mac-related texts, "command" is referred to by "Blumenkohl-Taste", or literally "Cauliflower-Key" because of the weird icon next to the apple. So I don't think that terminology is going to break worlds here.

"apple key" would actually suffice, wouldn't it? But knowing that it's called "Command" as well will help understand support docs...
