Keyboard menu controll in OSX - Mac Applications & Software

Like Windows can OSX users finially control the keyboard menu's? Previous versions of the Mac OS required the purchase of third party software (such as Speed Doubler) while Windows users (even CE) have always had this feature built into the OS. Heck even MS-DOS users can control their keyboard menu's without a mouse. There are times on the Mac wheh I wish I would not have to use the mouse, but unless I know all the shortcuts by heart in every app, its not possible. Back when I was running OS 7.5.x with my 68K, Speed Doubler solved those issues. ...

    Default Keyboard menu controll in OSX

    mouse, but unless I know all the shortcuts by heart in every app, its
    not possible. Back when I was running OS 7.5.x with my 68K, Speed
    Doubler solved those issues. When I upgrade to OSX I hope to be assured
    I will once again be able to control my menu's without a mouse, and
    without any expensive buger third party software.

    The feature you mention is present in Jaguar.

    Okay, why Jaguar? I thought they would have had this feature available at the
    introduction of OSX.

    One last question does anyone know of any Mac OS 9.x apps that will give me the
    feature I want? Speed Doubler was an OS 7.x 68K application and no longer (at
    least in any of my tests) will work under OS 9.x.

    Then I have to pay for that. I wish they had a freeware app.
