Don't they both do the same thing?  If you are used to the long version
copy, isn't your material already copied to the highlight, middle
click buffer by the time you use your copying via keyboard 'shortcut?'

What is the point of having two clipboard buffers for the same thing?
Is it just for the GNUbies moving from that /other/ OS so that they
can still do as they are used to doing?

If such is the case,  are we not better off teaching instead of making
Linux into a clone of Winduhs?

(can you say, "Ctrl, Alt, Delete?")
