    Tell you what, ask me what all that meant pre 2003 when I got a pc after the last one ran away with the last child, what those terms meant and I would have replied similarly. I had to be shown where the on switch was and did, also like Homer Simpson, look for the any key. I had never used them when the kids had them.
