Windows equivalent keyboard shortcuts in Ubuntu Linux

A new la entry has been added:

Windows equivalent keyboard shortcuts in Ubuntu Linux

Many of us come from the Windows world to Linux through Ubuntu and settle with Ultimate Edition ;) . I wondered whether there is a way to set up Windows key board equivalents in ubuntu. After searching
in the web and doing some experiments myself, I have set up the following in my ubuntu box. It could be configured in Compiz or some could be done by Ubuntu Tweak.

So first things first. We all want the main menu to pop up when we press the Windows/Super key.

As a newbie, you lost me at Right Windows Super Key. I only have one Windows key myself.
