Do you ever think to your self "Man, I love doing screen captures, but on Ubuntu Linux it's just cumbersome in comparison to Mac OS X" (notice that Windows 7 followed the trend with its new Snipping Tool too).

Guess What! It doesn't have to be cumbersome anymore:

System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts
Name: OSX-style Screen Capture
Command: gnome-screenshot --area
Shortcut: alt-ctrl-4

Unfortunately there's a bug and you can't map alt-shift-4 as you would like. Sad day. Oh well.
