Of course I did not say that. What made you think that? All I said is that they seem to think it is good. You may of course be right that I have convinced them, but that was not my meaning.

Since MS Windows is
not the main target this makes it problematic to convince people.

I don't think it is hard to convince people, for real problems.
Perhaps you perceive as problems things that not many people see as

You may be right.

I think it just fell off the wayside.

If you're so convinced it is a problem, you should push harder IMHO.

It may be that not many people except me think it is a problem loosing work when logging off. Perhaps they do not think of what they done once they logged off? Or maybe they never do.

What a you trying to say? That the ability to use those keys as meta
should be ruled out because it brakes the Windows UI guidelines?

No. I'm saying that IMO your opinion in that regard is wrong: the
issue is not uncontroversial.

Maybe you are right, but as far as I remember there was no one saying that it is very important to be able to use the Windows keys for example to start Explorer from inside Emacs. But I might be mistaken of course.

But steeling Alt is a far worse
thing than steeling the Windows keys.

I just happen to disagree. Stealing neither one seems bad to me.

What about accessibility guidelines?

It as complex as it needs to be
and as simple as it can be.

That's only true if you factor the gain out of the equation.

Or if you include the gain IMO.
