    i'm a stupid newbie.
    but hell.... i'm not that stupid that I need to be served a dumbed down linux simply because some people complained about hitting the wrong keys!
    I bet they learnt quick smart not to go hitting random keys unless they want random things to happen (if they haven't learnt the system yet). There's no way you can hit ctrl-alt-backspace accidentally.

    Abolutely not! I use ctrl-alt-backspace to get me out of sticky situations. I would not want to call this Linux without ctrl-alt-backspace. Wow.

    Here's something fascinating.

    My hybrid PrntScrn/SysRq acts as a distinct SysRq key, rather than a Fn+PrntScrn key in terminal mode.

    It's something that can be enabled for the more experienced user, so I'm going to say yes to this. What concerns me more, is that Gnome disabled CTRL_ALT_ESC as an xkill shortcut.

    quick question.
    the ctrl alt esc shortcut you mention. What did that do differently to the ctrl alt backspace?

    It fired up xkill, which turns your mouse cursor into an X (or a skull and crossbones), you'd click on an offending hung app and X would terminate it.

    I'm aware it still works in KDE, not sure about XFCE or any other Window Managers.

    a geez..... that would have come in handy a few times.
    I wonder. That deskpane applet "force a misbehaving application to quit" can't be using xkill. Does it? Sometimes it just plain doesn't work. Whereas I remember xkill being much more effective than that.

    I hope it doesn't get changed, how the hell can you accidentally hit all three at once?
    I agree: although I haven't had that much call to restart anything when things went wrong with Ubuntu, I too don't see how it would be possible to accidentally do the CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE thing. Bumping the touchpad on a laptop is more likely.

    I've always wondered if anything used the SysRq key.....
