I run Windows 7 at work and OS X at home. 2 sets of muscle memories is a hassle - is there a way to map all 'Apple +' commands into 'Ctrl +'?

E.g. turn + C into Ctrl + C?

KeyRemap4MacBook can change key combinations like control+c to command+c everywhere:

You can add your own settings in private.xml. See the source for the keycode constants and predefined settings.

You can change text editing shortcuts by creating a DefaultKeyBinding.dict. See TextMate Blog » Key bindings for switchers and Windows%20Bindings.dict.
