The first time I worked on a Mac (eons ago; it was a one-piece Mac with the 9" B&W screen), I couldn't free my floppy disk. Oh, I could eject it, but the Mac kept insisting I reinsert it.

Someone finally clued me in, because I never, _ever_ would have intuited that I should drag the disk icon to the trash can.
