Blue Screen of Death
The BSOD or Blue Screen of Death has attained legendary status for Microsoft Windows users as the symbol of the well-and-truly
fu crashed system. Subsequent versions of Windows have reduced the number of blue screens, lockups and general buginess, but they still occur more often than they should for such a mature (and costly) operating system.
Should we be using the alternatives? For running servers, I'd say definitely. For workstations too, many Linux distros offer superb performance and usability. Is Windows reliable and versatile enough to be run in embedded systems? Well, you be the judge..
These BSODs originally appeared at NoBlueScreens.com and have been moved over due to popular demand.
