    Pssh, neither one of these is as bad as the Plaid screen of death I came across when I corrupted my memory by messing around with C pointers as an amateur. Now that was scary, and required a hard reset.

    The more I think about it, the funnier it is, because I can fully remember (back before I knew anything at all about computers) occasionally running into the BSOD or seeing my dad get it, and having him say all you gotta do is reboot. Not caring at all at what it actually means. Spend a thousand or much more (these day's) on a top of the line (for the minute) machine and it has a catastrophic error and you ignore it and just reboot. Seems a bit silly to me.

    For the BSOD maybe a metallic grinding, a screech and then a crunch...


    For the RSOD the sound of mocking laughter.......
    I remember playing with my system sounds on my father's Apple PowerPC desktop oh so long ago. Whenever something would go wrong (which actually happened relatively rarely with that computer), the voice from Mortal Kombat (the one that said "Fight!" and "Finish him!") would say: "It's official: you suck."
    At my old work on our bosses computer we changed all of the sounds in his windows machine to homer simpsones "Doh!" for every sound.
    He called us freaking out. He was like "Oh sh$# I got a virus"
    It was funny.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    hmmm i wonder if theres customizable error screens, i mean theres customable themes, boot screens, login screens and crap, why couldnt they put one in for error screens. i guess it wouldnt be to hard to try change the colour, however i havent been in windows so long. wheres the file that u modded for the sounds and stuff. this could be fun.
