It kept the keyboard clean and you never had to think a minute, in which menu this or that instruction might hide.
Don't blame HP for something they aren't responsible for. It's "WP", not "HP".

As for your argument: I don't like [Alpha]something[Alpha] at all without a dedicated alpha keyboard. The best you can get is a catalog with alpha navigation. WP 34S (and WP 31S, too) have this feature built in. In WP 34S we just don't have enough memory to implement a full catalog of all functions. The latter would be even better than your beloved Alpha sequence because there is no need to type more letters than are unique for the command. As it is implemented now you just need to know the catalog a command resides in.

This is what I found out about Rumpelstilzchen: http://www.dict.cc/englisch-deutsch/Rump...tskin.html
