Some ceramic materials show semiconducting properties. These are SiO2, GeO2, TiO2, etc. Nowadays recent developments in electronic world is the result of controlling the conducting materials. Silicon technology term comes from the usage of very pure SiO2 in electronic devices showing semi-conductive properties. Main cause for its usage is having much reserve than others. Controllable conducting by ceramic materials made electronic devices smaller, last longer than fabricated by transistors. For example, laptops, cellular phones are the results of developments in semi-conducting technology using ceramic materials.
You cannot remove this program easily as Microsoft is out to bug you.
Best to change to Linux operating system and not help Microsoft.
Easier said than done though.
Because it is was already the standard for typewriters and when a better method came (Dvorak). People were already used to to QWERTY.
Note: Dvorak optimized his keyboard for speed in typing ordinary English language text by professional secretaries (e.g. business letters, memos, books, magazine and newspaper articles). There is no evidence that it would be any better than the QWERTY (or any other keyboard layout) for the often largely numerical computer data or use by nonprofessional typists.
Note: Other keyboard layouts are used on computers and typewriters in other countries (e.g. AZERTY, QUERTZ).
The binary system is numeric system with a base of 2, using only the numerals 0 and 1, or two gravitationally connected stars or other celestial objects which orbit around their centre of mass.
