Universality is somewhat relative. :) Those keystrokes were in Windows
3.0 and early OS/2's (and Ctrl+X, C, & V weren't). But with Win 3.1,
they adopted the Mac conventions (instead of Cmd+X ... it was Ctrl+X
...) and just kept those old keys for backwards compatibility. Modern
Win programs don't have Shift+Insert ... on their Edit menus.
But most people -- especially those using Cygwin! -- don't have a
problem with overloaded CTRL key functions. When in vi, I certainly
don't expect my NoteTab Pro CTRL keys to work. :)
