Mac vs PC

One place that I really prefer Mac over PC is the ease in which characters like ä can be entered.

On a Mac you ctrl-u and the umlauts appear in a highlighted yellow space where the character will appear, then enter the base letter to be umlauted.  This is true for accents and several other special characters where you type in alt+ and they appear, like †.

On the PC you can use the alt+number string on the number pad or copy paste from the character viewer.  It's less convenient.
