I have to go with Loren, the BSOD certainly still comes up with
NT/2k/(especially)XP systems. I have had systems that would Blue
Screen about once a week. And, before someone (read Anthony) comes
out saying "You're using bum drivers or flaky apps" I definitely was.
I was, however, using ONLY things coming from the Windows Install CDs
or the Windows updates system which means that it's the OS itself that
is at fault. It's likely not representative of a lot of cases, but
just a little reminder that people shouldn't make such definitive
conclusions (read assumptions) before hearing the facts.
If I write a signature, my emails will appear more personalised.
