comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
@Bret Moore, it's certainly a bit unusual, by new account, I assume you mean a new account on the Mac? ... anyway, C-s shortcut is definitely overridden by something above the scope of the Terminal.app, so changing the Terminal settings / plists, won't have any affect on it. Presumably you've checked global keyboard settings as suggested by Sylvain Defresne, the only other thing I could suggest is to make sure you don't have a third party app installed which is capturing the C-s shortcut, QuickSilver for example.

comment Using screencapture when remotely logged in to a headless mac via ssh
I'll give it a go. BTW, one thing I already tried, which I should record here: using osascript to send the Cmd-Shift-3 screen capture shortcut, it didn't work.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
I better throw cocoa Emacs.app in here for good measure, this or MacVim are where you go when you are finished with toy editors. (Emacs.app is my preference, however I have it heavily customized from the default, and looks a lot like my ideal version of TextMate now.)

Lion's new Mail.app now beats the pants off Thunderbird, IMO.

If you do -M-x describe-key and do C-s (ie. I-search) does it work? It certainly sounds like something is bound to C-s at a higher level than the Terminal.app.

comment Emacs Ctrl-x ctrl-s command not working in Terminal.app
@Bret Moore - what are the differences between the two Macs and their Terminal configs? As a side note, have you tried using iTerm2.app instead (it's a general improvement over Terminal.app and worth using anyway.)

comment Is there any free/paid Windows emulator for Mac OS X?
@Umesh Kacha - s-unno.com domain doesn't resolve for me, so I can't see it. I'd probably recommend that you try VirtualBox if you haven't already. If that doesn't work you can try Parallels or VMWare (they will all require you to install Windows into a virtual machine.) - Parallels and VMWare are commercial solutions, so try your luck with VirtualBox first.
