Yeah,no. Ctrl alt del was fine just as it was.

it was the nuclear option of windows debugging; it really needed to be hard to hit accidentally.

Yeah, I remember the days of flinging the keyboard across the room too.

Well for me back in the day it was just one button.
My fist coming down on the whole keyboard!
Bam!
Computing is so much more civilized now.
Nary a fuck flung in frustration.
Um .. Behind you...

Most decent keyboards have a switch to disable the windows button. It's 2017. I'm sure we could figure a way around it being a problem.

What does a keyboard from 2017 have to do with a feature Gates would have liked to have back in Windows 3.0?

Think of all the rookie MMO players that wouldn't have been pranked if the Ctrl-Alt-Delete was single button though!

Yeah... pranks.

Consider how many times you've accidentally pressed the Windows button while in a game and had the Start menu pop up over the action. Only instead of a minor inconvenience it's a full system reboot.

Gates might be a genius but that's a horrible idea.
