I did not know the shortcut. IMHO your point is that very few if any
users will know all the keyboard shortcuts though they will know many of
them and the ones they do know are the ones they find the most useful.

Power users don't prefer toolbars: they prefer keyboard shortcuts...
My conclusion is that no decision should be drawn based on guessing and
personal preferences. It is not that simple with just age and expertise. For
instance, even regular, highly experienced users of Writer that utilize
keyboard shortcuts don't know the shortcut to show non-printing characters.
Or do you?
Treat this just as testable hypothesis.
Also, "power users" tend to modify the shortcut assignments and toolbars
to make them more useful while occasional users will probably do
neither. Occasional users are more dependent on menus.
PS: With "power users" I meant those that use a particular program to a
higher extend than other.
