For me, the strongest connotations Ctrl-Alt-Delete has had are:
- Rebooting a home MS-DOS system after I'd been playing a video game, which was an improvement on my past experiences - after all, our C64 had to be powercycled under equivalent circumstances.
- Rebooting my personal Linux system after upgrading the kernel, which is a firmly positive connotation. (Three-finger salute was faster than typing "reboot".)
- Logging into, locking, and unlocking my work PC, which is just, y'know, a thing.
