The History of Ctrl+Alt+Del

Ever thought there would be a lot of thought into implementing the most used key combination on windows Platform.

Priorly it was Ctrl + Alt + Esc being used to instigate a reboot, but the Inventor of this combination, David Bradley, who used to work as a Designer of the Early IBM PC, found out that there are a number of chances that you may accidentally do the reboot. So, in order to keep a total check over this, he re-designed it to our now Ctrl + Alt + Del, which compels you to use both of your hands in order to use it.

Checkout the video of David Bradley and get to know it in his own words.
