For what reason? You would get rid of everything which has to use ALT if you replace the key with CTRL.
Or is it something different you are after?

Qlemo - Just a personal preference. I'm used to Mac commands and often press alt expecting a command/control outcome, so I just want to switch it.

beware when changing keys, some apps and sometimes windows doesn't like it... i did that once, as i'm used to macs aswell, and CTLR+ALT+DEL wouldn't work all the time.
