[itsdifferent] BILL GATES loses





Have you ever wondered who has invented the "CTRL +

ALT + DEL " key combination?

 

David Bradley





He is the one who spent 1 minute and 23 seconds

writing the source code that has rescued and will

cointinue to rescue PC users worldwide for decades.







This extraordinary IBM employee retired on Friday,

January 14, 2005; after a prolonged service of 29

years.







His formula forces obstinate computers to restart when

they no longer follow other commands. By 1980, Bradley

was one of 12 people working on the debut.

The engineers knew they had to design a simple way to

restart the computer whenever it fails to respond to

the user. Bradley wrote the code to make it work.



Bradley says -

"I did a lot of other things than Ctrl-Alt-Delete, but

I'm famous for that one."







His fame and success is achieved each time a PC user

fails.





He commented on his relationship with Bill gates by

saying, "I may have invented it, but Bill gates made

it famous by applying my formula when ever any

Microsoft's Windows operating system made by him

CRASHES, thus I win when ever BILL GATES loses."
