To me, especially in the early days that I used the computer, it often
happened that I did not understand what I was asked, in those cases I acted
on the X which for me means "I refrain from making a decision at this

Instead of excluding the X, why don't you give the possibility to put the
focus where you want? So programmers who want a dry and immediate answer
can leave the NO as the last button.

I don't know if it's hysteria but I love the X's in the windows :-)


P.S. Speaking of focus, now that on buttons it works with GTK in Ubuntu it
has stopped working with QT (fusion theme)
