yes, obviously ctrl has been used in unix since the beginning.

i think robey's point is that since ctrl is a heavily used modifier key in a unix terminal, many (older) unix guis specifically avoided using ctrl as part of their keyboard shortcut scheme to leave it free for the terminal emulator.

gnome and kde do not do that, and it has major disadvantages.
