Story of ALT+CTRL_DEL

Have you ever thought of the person who inventoed "CTRL+ALT+DEL" key combination? DAVID BRADLEY -- He is the one who spent 1 min 23 sec in writing the source code that rescues the world's PC users for decades.This extraordinary IBM Employee retired recently after a prolong service of 29 years.His formula forces obstinate computers to restart when they no longer follow other commands.By 1980, bradly was one of 12 people working to create the doubt. The engineers knew they had to design a simple way to restart the computer when it fails to respond the user -- Bradley wrote the code to make it out.
Bradley says " I did a lot of other things than CTRL+ALT+DEL, but I'm famous for that one." His fame and success is achieved each time a PC user fails. He commented his relationship with Bill gates by saying
"I may have invented it, but Bill gates made it famous by applying my formula when evre any Microsoft's Win OS made by him CRASHES, thus I win when ever he looses.
