As The Darkness Looms

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says if he could go back in time, there’d be something more intuitive than the two-handed Ctrl-Alt-Delete command to interrupt a process.

In 2013 Gates said it was “mistake” requiring the three keys before logging in to Windows, and also blamed IBM engineers who “didn’t wanna give us our single button”. The three-key function was created by IBM engineer David Bradley who intended for it to be shortcut to rebooting an IBM PC.

A “mistake”? Then what, pray tell, Mr. Gates would you call Windows 95? Windows 98 before you released 98SE? Windows Me?

I guess Bill Gates is willing to be more reflective as he gets closer to his personal Blue Screen of death.

BGS (Bill Gates sucks)
