Force Quit is the Macintosh equivalent of Windows' CONTROL-ALT-DELETE, also known as the Three Fingered Salute. When your Macintosh application freezes, you have a slim chance of saving your work in your other open applications. Simply press the Apple (Command) and Option keys, and the Escape key. If the Force Quit fails, never fear. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
