Have you ever seen the disbelief on Windows users faces when you tell
them there aren't any viruses for Linux? They're so used to it, they
think it's completely natural for an operating system to have viruses.
But it's not. The question isn't why Ubuntu doesn't have the same
default keyboard shortcuts as Windows. The question is, why would Super
L be a good choice for the Applications menu? The fact that Windows has
a similar menu pop up when someone presses it, is not a good reason. Why
should it need to be learned? Because if we mimic Windows too closely
just to be similar, people will make other assumptions too. Ubuntu is a
different system with its own philosophy. It must be learned.
