Oh, now that you two have blown my cover, I have to confess. I am from
an alternate reality where technical limitations and bad design
decisions are recognized, deprecated and obsoleted at the earliest
opportunity. So, Unicode everywhere (including FTP and ZIP), keyboard
rows are not staggered, and HTML has been superseded with XHTML which
has to be valid to at least 1.0 Strict before any existing browser
displays even a bit of it.

But even in that alternate reality, now and then, people still miss a
bit of a technical limitation which was in effect at the time of their
childhood. Some develop a CRT-like terminal emulator, some listen to
music on vinyl discs.
