Excuse me Tom, this article is so bad I have to rip it apart.

Another quote:
"Those who want to use the computer but not have to know about it's
internals should not be able to accidentally trigger it."

Does this imply that people can press CTRL+ALT+Backspace accidentally??

I'm speechless.

Many people in thread here and other places like the freedesktop mailing
list and in http://lwn.net/Articles/327141/ have claimed to accidentally
tripped this key combo.
They have learnd their lesson and won't do it again.

People will have to understand that "Linux is not Windoze" and that it's naive to expect all OSes to behave the same rsp to adopt the design flaws of other OSes.

It'll be the same people who will complain, when they find their X system misbehaving and they are able to cope with the situation in reasonable manners because Red Hat's xorg maintainers have broken "ctl-alt-bs".

Those people who now are complaining, are those who know how helpful "clt-alt-bs" is in certain situations.

It is not that hard.
It's not that hard to press "ctl-alt-del", "ctl-alt-prsrcn", "ctl-S" and many other keyboard short cuts, either.
