An interesting tidbit about the fellow who wrote the code underlying Ctrl-Alt-Delete, David Bradley. Link here Notable: "At a 20-year celebration for the IBM PC, Bradley was on a panel with Microsoft founder Bill Gates and other tech icons. The discussion turned to the keys. 'I may have invented it, but Bill made it famous,' Bradley said. Gates didn't laugh. The key combination also is used when software, such as Microsoft's Windows operating system, fails."
