I think even when go 15 years without a confirmed BSOD sighting, and our kids look at us funny when we try to explain what they were, there will still be a population complaining about "all the BSODs." ***!!!*** PARITY ERROR PANIC ***!!!*** anyone?

You know, I've only seen blue screens in two places in the last few years...
1. Crappy hardware...usually video drivers from ATI...
and more interestingly,
B. The Airport. I travel a lot, and I see a BSOD nearly ever trip. Usually some touch screen e-ticket kiosk blows chunks and it's left like that for hours. We flew back from Las Vegas today and saw a very nice Blue Screen of Death actually OVER head above the Alaska Air ticket counters. It was not a typical BSOD since the monitor it was on didn't like the refresh rate of this particular BSOD. But with the over-hertz-y-ed flickering and the nice, regular columns of DLLBase, DateStamp and module name were very recognizable. Needless to say, I continually chuckle that some schmuck doesn't just set the thing to restart automatically. It is a kiosk after all.
