Disable message at Restart/Shutdown???

Description

There is a windoze-like "Are you really sure you want to ..." message at Restart/Shutdown which is very annoying. The usual BeOS philosophy is to NOT treat the user like an idiot.

Can we add a "Don't Nag" button here, so this can be disabled? Please??

Sorry but what is "windoze"? The Haiku philosophy is NOT to treat Windows users as idiots. And one question mark per question is enough btw.

The multiple question marks were SUPPOSED to be annoying, like the Restart/Shutdown box. It's called IRONY, dude. :-/

The plan is to change that alert to show the options (Restart vs. Shutdown), and have only one entry for this in the Deskbar.

While it might be annoying at first (one gets used to it quickly, though), accidently hitting the restart/shutdown item in the Deskbar can be pretty destructive in comparison (and since we're all getting older... :-)).

I still find it annoying in MS-Windows (tm), and if I didn't want to live dangerously I wouldn't have learned assembler. :)

But yes, I have to agree we're getting old. *sigh*
