I understand the historical and current purpose and meaning of CTRL+ALT+DEL.
It does not looks this way from this side. Have you actually tried to see just what you get in Windows Vista or Windows 7 when you press ALT+CTRL+DEL? Take a look on bottom right corner.
To attach that stigma and historical baggage to something used to simply signal your UI shell that you want to reboot, logout, or shut down is unintuitive to uses moving from the windows world to the Linux desktop.
What? Why? Why is it fine in Windows world, but not in Linux world? Do you mean they can only find red “power” button in bottom right corner and can not find it when it's closer to the center of the screen?
