The key

Every time I hear how Windows 8 is great because, “Yeah, they took everything away, but you can just use keyboard shortcuts from the Windows key,” I am reminded that I’ve been in IT for many years now, and that in the whole time maybe only three or or four of the thousands of users I’ve supported even knew where the Windows key was on the keyboard.

And of those few, only one of them I’ve yet encountered knew what it did and how to use it at all.

Only one.

So you see, obviously Microsoft is on the right path of user design because some wedgehead on Ars Technica who hasn’t seen the inside of a shower since the early ‘90s said they are.

Right-o, then.
