I have two suggestions about enhancement of Haiku's interactivity. First: the possibility to choose between alt and ctrl as shortcut key, in a Menu Preferences (Like in BeOS) Second: have regulars copy, paste and cut in the right contestual menu (again like in BeOS). Screenshots here.

You can change the shortcut key in Keymap preferences (where it's a button that should really be a pop-menu or radio selection). Copy/cut/pasting works, see the "File" menu of a Tracker window. (Try holding the shift key to see some nice extensions). It's deliberately not in the context menu, because there are already so many items in it. Most will take the keyboard shortcuts anyway, I think.
