    skip it. Ive currently got 3 pcs running 8.1 dual boot(vhd) in a school testing it as now the start screen is manageable it seems fit for enterprise and it boots soo much faster

    because ctrl alt del would be interpreted by the real pc not the remote and end is usually near del on a keyboard (next key over here)

    Interesting aside...

    It was [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[ESC] on my old CPC
    [CTRL]+[BREAK] on the BBC Micro
    and [CTRL]+[AMIGA]+[AMIGA] on the, er, Amiga (I was tempted to put Atari ST )

    Of the three I think Micro predates the IBM PC by a year? I wonder where this practice originates from?

    To be honest, I don't mind the CTRL+ALT+DEL but there are a lot of less-used keys on the keyboard - Function keys for example that were pretty critical back in the days of command line GUIs but I for one never use the 'Scroll lock' button so I think some of the lesser-used keys could have been repurposed into a login combo - Esc + F1 for example.

    I am suddenly really tempted to replace my signature with this:

    The only thing stopping me is how annoying flash GIFs are out of the corner of your eye.

    Resave it in paint. [IIRC that strips out the animation.]

    But it wouldn't be right without the animation!

    If I could get the sound of the floppy drive loading to play every time someone loaded one of my posts as well, I would.

    Aw man... Large animated gifs and play-on-load sound.

    What is this, GeoCities? [Or Angelfire]

    Next you'll be wanting special cursors and horizontal scrolling text banners.

    marquee tag + IE glow filter to drag everyone's CPU usage down and destroy their browsers.

    I may or may not have done this in a past life in certain HTML enabled chatrooms.
