    @a_horse_with_no_name: I'm not shocked by the question, but the number of upvotes :) Compare e.g. to How do you quit the Vi editor with single keypress? – user272735 Jul 25 '12 at 16:04

    Sometimes we need quick and straight forward answer than searching it in the manual to focus on the real problem.In such cases these short questions are really helpful. – App Work Nov 16 '12 at 11:35

    The real question is not "are people capable of reading a manual", but "should enterprise software respond to standard exit sequences" like, I don't know, "exit"? Having to read the manual to quit seems seriously counter-intuitive. – Kheldar Feb 20 '14 at 14:39

    @Kheldar Indeed, it's just bad user interface design (coupled with arrogance). People are insecure about weird things. – Iain Collins Mar 10 '14 at 20:46
