Microsoft Announces Improved Blue Screen of Death

Readers will probably know, by the time they see this, that Dobbs Code Talk has new blogging software. I thought I'd test it by posting an exciting new product-improvement announcement that I found courtesy of Wilson WindowWare: Microsoft Announces Improved BSOD.

The new Blue Screen of Death will display ads for Microsoft products; while partner companies will be able to bid for advertising space on it. This reflects how the BSOD dominates the lives of Windows users: Microsoft released the upgrade after surveys that showed users spend more time at the BSOD than at any other Windows activity, even browsing porn.
