Sorry, Jan, but I have no idea what you mean. Did you tell me if you think there is something like CUA on OSX? Or do you think someone not familiar with OSX can look that up in a few minutes? (I am sure I can't.)

It uses a different modifier.

Thanks, I see. Did you have something else in mind, Jan? Is there any obstacle having cua-mode on by default on OSX

No, I did not have anything else in mind.  The OSX equivalents to C-c, C-v, C-x. C-z (i.e. Cmd-C, Cmd-v, Cmd-x, Cmd-z) and more already work as they do in other OSX applications in Emacs.  Turning on CUA mode per default is just wrong on OSX, nobody uses those keybindings for copy/paste et.al.

I see. I had no idea of that. What do people use for copy/paste etc in other applications on OSX? Is there another standard?

Eh, I just told you.  It takes less than a  minute to check anyway. If you don't care to do that, you should not be suggesting defaults.
