Ctrl-Alt-Delete Inventor Retires

As was pointed out on 40 Bicycles, the inventor of the Ctrl-Alt-Delete key sequence is retiring from IBM after 28.5 years.

The best part in the article is what Bradley said when he and Bill Gates were both on a panel celebrating 20 years of the IBM PC. He said, “I may have invented [Ctrl-Alt-Delete], but Bill made it famous.”

Reminders like this are great for those who still think a PC is better than a Mac. Just remember that Bill Gates is quoted as saying, “If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.”
