Unexpected System Failure - Prepare For Impact

These stories just write themselves. You really can't make up things any crazier than what's out there. Bill Gates is currently working with Ford Motor Company to make a car that won't crash. Right. How about you geniuses in Redmond focusing on making a computer operating system that won't crash, and leave the cars alone. Microsoft's operating systems are notoriously unstable. When the O/S crashes, you see that annoying blue screen, derisively referred to as the "Blue Screen of Death. This spawned a joke a while back that Microsoft intended to start generating revenue by selling ad space on the Blue Screen of Death. Then, there was the joke that circulated a while back about If Microsoft Made Cars. Never mind that fact that a growing percentage of car service is due to software problems already. I, for one, will never buy a car that runs a Microsoft operating system. Unexepected system failure - brace for impact :O

Update: Toyota Prius has a software bug that causes the engine to shut down at highway speeds. Nice.

Did you try XP Professional SP2? This one does not have the "Microsoftish" feel and problems...

Vote for a crash safe car!
