If I remember well, we had decided to make the KDE-mode shortcuts 
GNOME-compatible, e.g. no Alt-F4, which is surprising for GNOME users. 
However Windows-mode shortcuts are as much as possible like Windows' 

But of course some shortcuts are well-known and often used and therefore 
(somewhat) expected.
