Socoder -> Question of the Day -> QOTD : Oh, Whatever it's called...

Why is it, my mind absolutely refuses to call the Left Windows key "Left-Windows". No matter how much I try, if I'm trying to explain to someone which key it is, I'm guaranteed to call it "Left Amiga... Um.. Thingy.. Windows key.."

Rediculous!
And yet, that's what that key is, in my head.

So, today's question, What things have you given alternative names to, and then refused to call correctly.

I think the Windows key is stupid. Whoever decided to print logo's on keyboards wasn't very smart.

Nothing comes to mind to answer your question though

Does it even have its own keycode? I thought it was just Ctrl+Alt.

I just call it the Windows Button/Key, and to be honest I find it easier to use the key than having to click the thing.
