"Ok, so you have Linux installed on your computer and want to know how to make your life easier? Well, sit right back, and I'll give you 10 tweaks to your system that I use on a daily basis and couldn't live without!"

"1.      F1 to launch your favorite term!

Yup, I know it may sound corny, but once you get used to it, you will love it! A terminal program in X is probably one of the most used programs. If you have quick easy access to it, then you can become more efficient. (BTW, I know you can do this with the following window managers: blackbox, enlightenment, sawfish, windowmaker.) You may have to do some research in order to get your window manager to perform this task."
"2.     Control D
This one most of you may know, but some of you don't know. Do you type "exit" all the time when trying to get out of a terminal program? Or do you look for the big X to close that term out? Well, simply hit the keyboard combinations of "ctrl + d" and it will log you out!"
