  • I love keyboard shortcuts, and the first thing I do when I have to start using a new app, or new version of an old app, is that I FREAK OUT when the keyboard shortcuts are different. I put off upgrading Netscape for almost two years because I got so burnt by the whole keyboard interaction in the early NS5's being different and broken.

    Here's my new meme: Tell programmers that you heard? this one time at band camp? that if you break keyboard bindings between versions (i.e., if what worked in version N doesn't work anymore in N+1), then you get AUTOMATICALLY INDICTED under the A.D.A. [] and then you get sentenced to community service that consists of people with wheelchairs running you over with their big custom vans. And it's true because it happened to a guy you knew at your last job's friend!

    • Yes yes yes! We need to start spreading the urban myth!

      I also don't understand why all apps don't have a way to configure shortcuts to your liking. Most KDE apps have that (though there needs to be a named action for things that you want to configure). I think there is little that I want more DEAD than Ctrl+Q in Mozilla. Each time I hit it by mistake it kills my twenty open tabs, the mail I was writing/reading, and all my IRC sessions. It's HELL!
