Are you a touch typist? I find C-x C-c really easy. I just hold down the
control with my right pinky and then just c and then x with the second
and third fingers of my left hand. What I like is my hands are pretty
much still on the home keys row. With any of the function keys, I have
to move my hand up to them, moving away from the home keys. 

I use a standard qwerty keyboard. For anyone using divorak or some other
keyborad layout, milage may vary. However, in general, I think moving
away from the home row/keys usually reduces speed and is less
convenient. (likewise, I use to like the VI movement keys because I
could easily move around the buffer without having to move off the main
keyborad. I use to find the need to hit ESC to change modes a bit
annoying for the same reasons.
