When you connect to a PC network, the icon in coverflow shows a screen with the blue screen of death. Quite funny really.

That's freakin' hilarious!! Just showed it to my brother... As he just happens to be sitting at his PC.

No worries though... He's looking at buying a MBP very soon!

Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.

It is cheeky given all the problems with new iMacs locking up.

I've had about 3 crashes with Leopard so far, so their superiority complex is unfounded.

It's funny and all and gives me a laugh, but with a good computer that has no hardware issues, XP is very stable. I went 2 years on a P4 2.53Ghz with 1GB RAM with XP Pro SP2 without one OS lock or blue screen. The machine was on the internet 24 hours a day with at least 8 applications running. Never one blue screen.

No, it looks a bit different but it's still a Blue Error screen with a bunch of numbers. I rarely ever see it here except with defective hardware.

You are thinking of the default behavior where an error that halts the OS (BSOD) causes the computer to auto-reboot. If I recall, you have turn that off to get the actual BSOD to appear. I reckon they chose to have the system auto-reboot since 99% that's what people do. Only techies know what info in a BSOD is important and how to track down the cause. Joe User just wants to get back to his game and email.
