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.
