Someone has this customization in his ~/.emacs file:
  (cua-mode 1)

This has the effect of enabling CUA mode. But the user is not
aware of it, because the Edit menu displays:

  Undo  C-x u
  Cut   C-w
  Copy  M-w

As a consequence, the user does not feel familiar with this
editor and does not dare to use the keystrokes he's familar with
(Ctrl-C for Copy etc.).

Suggestion: Make the Edit menu display

  Undo  C-z
  Cut   C-x
  Copy  C-c

Then the user would feel familiar and could use these
keybindings without thinking about them.
