Ctrl+Alt+Del 蓋茲:設計錯誤


Bill Gates has described the decision to use Ctrl+Alt+Del as the command needed to log on to a PC as a mistake.

比爾蓋茲說用 Ctrl+Alt+Del 來登入電腦的設計是個錯誤。



from BBC (by 好青年 中譯)


Originally designed to trigger a reboot of a PC, it survives in the Windows 8 operating system as the command to access the task manager toolbar and is still used in older versions to log on.

Ctrl+Alt+Del 最初是設計來重新啟動電腦,且在 Windows 8 作業系統上依然被用來呼叫工作管理員,而在舊版本上仍被運用在登入電腦。

In an interview, the Microsoft co-founder blamed IBM for the shortcut, saying he had favoured a single button.

在一段訪問中,微軟共同創辦人比爾蓋茲批評 Ctrl+Alt+Del 這個快速鍵設計,他偏好於使用單一按鍵。


The keyboard shortcut was invented by IBM engineer David Bradley.

此鍵盤快速鍵設計是由一名叫 David Bradley 的 IBM 工程師設計的。

Originally he had favoured Ctrl+Alt+Esc, but he found it was too easy to bump the left side of the keyboard and reboot the computer accidentally so switched to Ctrl+Alt+Del because it was impossible to press with just one hand.

他最初欲使用 Ctrl+Alt+Esc,但後來發現三個鍵都集中在鍵盤左側,很容易讓人不小心就重新啟動電腦,所以才換成 Ctrl+Alt+Del,如此以來必須雙手並用。

During IBM's 20th anniversary celebrations, he said that while he may have invented it, Bill Gates made it famous.

在 IBM 二十週年慶時,他說雖然此設計是由他所發明,但卻是比爾蓋茲將它發揚光大。

His involvement in the invention has made him something of a programming hero though- with fans asking him to autograph keyboards at conferences.

這項發明讓在程式設計領域小有名氣,有電腦迷會在研討會要求他在鍵盤上簽名。


Finger strike
手指襲擊

The shortcut, also known as the three-finger salute - came to prominence in the early 1990s as a quick fix for the infamous "blue screen of death" on PCs.

此快速鍵,又稱三指禮,在九零年代早期是電腦上聲名狼藉的「藍屏死機」狀況發生時的速解法。

But speaking at a fundraising campaign at Harvard University, Mr Gates said he thought that it had been a mistake.

在哈佛大學的募款活動對話當中,比爾蓋茲說他覺得這個設計是個錯誤。

"We could have had a single button, but the guy who did the IBM keyboard design didn't want to give us our single button."

比爾蓋茲:「我們可以只用一個按鍵就好,但那位設計 IBM 鍵盤的仁兄不想讓我們使用單一按鍵。」

While some loathe the clunky command, others took to news site Reddit to express their fondness for it.

雖然有些人嫌這個設計畫蛇添足,卻也有人在新聞網站 Reddit 上表示支持。

"I feel a single button would be a mistake," said one.

有人說:「我覺得單一按鍵是個錯誤」。
