You've only used the consumer version of Windows XP and the default configuration based on those consumer versions. Besides, CTRL + SHIFT + ESC can be done with a single hand so much easier. Comfortable using the shortcut, thumb presses both SHIFT and CTRL while a finger extends and presses ESC, fits well when you keep your hands at standard typing placements.
