Keyboard Shortcuts VS or IDEA

I have tried really hard in my development career to follow best practices and use tools and methods that are common to the majority of developers or shops.  I am fairly new to ReSharper and started with the Visual Studio shortcuts but later changed to use the IDEA shortcuts because I thought that was more in common.  Now, I really don't know.  What is the pro's and cons and what is everyone basically using?

Thanks

I started with IDEA over in the Java world, so kept using that in the
C#/.Net world with ReSharper.

However, I soon discovered that I was the only one at my place of work that
used that key mapping.  Everyone else uses Visual Studio, and I would assume
anyone that has never used Intellij IDEA would just select that.

There's only a few things that I think are broken.  I don't understand why
Ctrl-P isn't mapped to parameter info (it seems to be otherwise unmapped?),
which makes the whole smart-completion/type-completion/code-completion
keystrokes weird.  But beyond that, they all make a fair amount of sense and
were easy to switch to.

I now use VS keymap, just as I imagine most people do (and certainly
everyone at my place of work does).

Hello Timothy and Paul,

The IDEA scheme was originally the only keyboard scheme available in ReSharper
1.0. After some time, it turned out that this scheme modifies too many of
Visual Studio built-in shortcuts, so we've introduced the VS scheme which
would modify as few shortcuts as possible. Basically, if you're migrating
from IntelliJ IDEA (and Java development) or if you've used ReSharper since
version 1.0, IDEA scheme should be familiar to you. Otherwise choosing a
keyboard scheme is a matter of personal preference.

Thanks Andrey and Paul,

This is the type of info I was looking for.  I discovered that most everyone here was using the VS scheme, so I think I will switch back also.  I was comfortable with either one, but as I learn more and more of the shortcuts it would be harder to switch.
