It's not instantly  clear that the more slower to  access a command is
the less  frequent is its  use, that the  choice of the key  bindin is
mnemonic (at least in English),  that when you use control you usually
do things on a character basis, with meta on a word basis...

Those  are things a  newbie can't  imagine, being  trapped in  the CUA
interface and its limited power...
