I read somewhere that if you right-click while the windows key is depressed that your system would crash. Obviously I wouldn't attempt to do this because of the consequences. So. Is this really true, or just a hoax? I've been itching for the answer for a long time. :)

That's like me saying, "If you jumped off a cliff, would you die?"

and you saying "No, I just tried"

...
I didn't expect someone to actually try it. But it says in my C++ book... and they're NEVER wrong.. So I'm replacing this reality with my own right now :)

and you saying "No, I just tried"Lol, why? People recover from system crashes all the time :p It's no big deal so long as you don't have anything important in memory...
But it says in my C++ book...Does it mention a specific version of Windows?

/EDIT: Assuming it *is* Windows. I'm guessing so -- Macs don't have a Windows key, and we *n?x people are all too insecure to call it a Windows key ;) Plus... hey... crashes. "Who ya gonna call?"

Keyword being important :)

The section isn't actually on crashing your computer, he just rambles on about a bunch of stuff

Hmm... doesn't seem to work.

The good news, though, is that a system crash is never too hard to find with a Windows computer. And that's true with any version.

Hey windows does not need any buttons to be pressed for it to crash it can crash on it's own LOL
