    ha ha ha… actually I’ve seen grey screen of death on my mac more times than BSOD on my Windows machine.

    I have something similar… well not really, the Windows 8 BSOD, this one is funny (seriously): http://i.imgur.com/MQPDw.jpg

    That Blue Screen of Death isn’t actually a work of art, it’s a Photoshopped screenshot of it with a pinhole(?).

  5. I’m gonna go make a Kernel Panic version. I’ll post the PSD when I’m done.

    With the number of Mountain Lion and xcode crashes, freeze and slowness, I think Mac users should be conservative on their comments about all other OSs

    I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a bsod.

    Even the bluescreen looks better on Apple!

  9. Dingoe says:

    Almost convincing. Apart then from the font. Windows would never use The typical Apple “myriad pro” font.

    As a former Windows user, a BSOD is NOT funny. Apple’s GSOD actually less useful: how the f am I supposed to read Korean, eh?

    Long live Linux.

    I don’t think chortling about historic windows unreliability seems fitting as OS X seems to get ever less reliable as it is increasingly infected by to-many-features-on-too-many-platforms-itis. My windows applications are bombing out a lot, although admittedly loosing the whole machine remains rare, but no longer a “never”.
