I am aware of this conflict, but I had no idea that this mode is on by default? What ever happened with Emacs that we have become this much Windows- biased????

Anyway, if the Emacs Gods decide that this has to change, the way to do it would be this:

   "Non-nil means use alternative key bindings for some keys.
 Org-mode uses S-<cursor> keys for changing timestamps and priorities.
These keys are also used by other packages like `CUA-mode' or `windmove.el'.

start with "emacs -Q test.org"

and then shift-left

expected behaviour: since shift-select-mode is set to t by default
(see src/callint.c), I would expect that shift-movements select
a region, and that major modes should not override this behaviour,
without being asked of doing so.

actual behaviour: upon shift-left the binding org-shiftleft is called
which marks the current item as "DONE". This is very confusing for
people accostumed to shift-selection, which works very well in all
other emacs modes I know.

Possible solution: in lisp/org/org.el
only include the bindings

        '([(shift up)]          org-shiftup)
         '([(shift down)]        org-shiftdown)
         '([(shift left)]        org-shiftleft)
         '([(shift right)]       org-shiftright)

if the variable shift-select-mode is nil.
