    Ctrl-Alt-Delete was IBM’s idea, true, but let’s not tell half a story — it had nothing to do initially with Windows at all or logging on! It would do a soft reboot of the DOS computer no matter what else was running (or hung), so that’s quite a good idea not to have that be a key sequence that could be accidentally hit or confused with some other sequence…. not a fail. By the time Windows reused the sequence, it was because it was well-known… hardly a fail either.
