I like pressing three buttons, it has a sophisticated feeling to it!

 

 

I think the member Hum should take a break, and let other members have a chance to contribute news also.

Other members are free to contribute news regardless of what Hum does, aren't they? I post articles on occasion, mostly political, and have never been told not to. But why post something that is being discussed in another thread? Seem redundant.

 

Post some original stuff, LWC, and I'd read it as often as I do Hum's stuff.

Sorry, I didn't think to check, I assumed it wasn't posted yet. I wish there was an easier way to know a similar post was created or some kind of warning thing that pops up before posting.

I never knew IBM 'designed' the keyboard.

If the press the buttons in that order you send the delete command to whatever program you have open.

Whether Ctrl+Alt+Del was a mistake or not, it is truly insignificant either way.

 

Now the mobile blunder, that was big admission. Although, I couldn't tell whether Ballmer was trying to deflect responsibility to the Windows division, or just explaining why he had made the mistake at the time.

I've read this story at a few sites and I am trying to figure out still what he means by it was a mistake.... if they wouldn't design a single button back in the day for the keyboard, then obviously the other option was a multi-button press. The story never questions or tells why it was considered a mistake. This is probably one of those things that is totally taken out of context, or he actually didn't even say this.

Ever since Windows 7 and Windows 8, I rarely have to press Alt Control Delete.  I remember having to use Alt Ctrl Delete countless times in Windows 98 to Windows XP.

Hum does not post 99% of the Tech computer news on here. ;) I just happened to see it.
