Windows Key Re-maps
On Windows, Vim has slightly different behavior for a few basic keys. Namely, ctrl-v, ctrl-x, and ctrl-z are re-mapped to make them more familiar to Windows users. Ctrl-v, which is probably the most widely used of these, is re-mapped to ctrl-q. To get the equivalent of a ctrl-z (background process), you can issue the :suspend ex command. I don't believe there are re-mappings for ctrl-a (add) and ctrl-x (subtract); although, you can probably override them in mswin.vim.
