The guy behind Ctrl-Alt-Del

By on September 30, 2003, 11:55 AM
Saw on Slashdot this piece of news: "Gannett News is running a story about David Bradley, the IBM engineer who, in 1980, coined Ctrl-Alt-Del. Interestingly, he meant for it to remain a developer-only tool, not something for end users, and certainly not to have Windows users change their passwords or logoff. He also says he chose those keys specifically as it's not a key sequence that can be struck by accident."
