I wonder if, in the comfort of his beautiful Jim Cutler-designed half-mansion/half-terarium, Gates ever turns on his brand new laptop and wants to throw it across the room because he can't figure out how to make Windows 8 do what he has been making his computers do for as long as he has been a billionaire and then some.
Is this an idle supposition, or some sort of wonderful fantasy?
On my keyboard, windows-button+L (lowercase) works to lock. Only two keys needed! (and no confirmation needed!) (But it doesn't help for unlocking/ logging in.)
