This isn't the first time Gates has made this point, either: Back in 2013, Gates said that he originally intended for "control-alt-delete" to be a single button, but IBM got in the way. Back around 1980, when the two companies were collaborating on the original IBM PC, Microsoft couldn't get IBM to spare a dedicated button on the keyboard.This is something that IBM PC co-creator David Bradley once copped to, during a panel discussion at a media event.
"I may have invented it, but Bill made it famous," Bradley said - leaving Gates, also sitting on the stage, looking somewhere between bemused and annoyed.You can watch that moment here:For all the second-thoughts about it, control-alt-delete has stuck around: It's still in current versions of Windows 10, now used primarily to access the task manager or to switch logged-in users quickly.
