Blue Screens Of Death are your friends?

After all the trouble I went through with my PC, I am still getting issue's. You know just the occasional Blue Screen Of Death, no biggy. You seen after you have a had and seen as many as I have you learn to love them and embrace them. NOT.

They would have to be the biggest sign to tell you "You are screwed!" I know what the problem is in mine. Its my Hard drive. I will have to consult my parents for a new one, unless any of you want a computer built and live in Australia. I didn't think so, if you are on here you are probably are a Mac user of know how to build one. But on with the story.

Blue Screens of Death for the average not tech savvy computer user are horrible. The lady I served for this morning, was terrified to see her 'baby' dying. I can relate to this. Just think back when you weren't tech savvy. For some of us that is NEVER. We are breed into tech geeks. But for people like me we had to teach ourselves because our families are basically rocks when it comes to computers. Useless.

The first time I saw a blue screen of death it was on a drizzly Tuesday... I am joking. I was probably about eight or ten and I immediately grab a camera and took a photo of it and rode do to my nearest tech shop and showed them. That was the day that I become a nerd geek. From there on Blue screens of death have been a apart of my life and I think they will still be there for a while.

Blue Screens of death are here to stay and we need to embrace them... Or throw your PC out the window and buy a Mac. Your choice. :)

I was glad to see the honesty in the comment made by Dan on 7-20-2009 in which he said:
(Don't kid yourself about "Macs don't crash". That's a total farce, and they do have the GSOD or "Gray Screen of Death")

Your statement on GSOD & the Myth surrounding the stability of the Mac OS was a fresh change from that of the tired norm. In where typically Mac FanBoys are saying that a Mac never gets a virus or breaks down & how PC's do so repeatedly. I don't think it's so much about superiority as it is about dynamics, look this is really about numbers, it's clear that the windows user base is phenomenally huge in size as opposed to the Mac user base which is tiny. Another factor is user knowledgability,look no disrespect but generally a Mac user is technically more savy & most likely will catch malware as soon as it kicks off. The same can not be said about the new generation of Windows Users especially pertaining to the success that Dell had & the advent of the huge New User base it alone brought to the Net.
Yeah a lot of Windows PC's have been sold during the last 5 years but not a lot of savy came with it plain & simple.
So there is this huge user base full of New users that even though they have been warned still manage to leave the back door open so to speak & are constantly looking for free stuff,but it's My opinion that we see so many Windows PC's hit becasue of 4 reasons.

#1.The large size of the Windows User Base

#2.The lack of savy within the Windows User Base

#3.The small size of the Mac User Base

#4.The savy within the Mac User Base

The above facts alone would cause Hackers to target the huge Windows user base full of unsecure Boxs as opposed to a small Mac user base full of savy users & secured Boxs.

Picture a pool so very small you can hardly find it & if you do the few fish in it seem to be so very small & you can barely see them & talk about smart,they just won't bite,not ever.But if by chance one of em does get hooked it knows how to shake free. Then picture a pool so big you can't see across it or to the bottom, but you can clearly see the surface is teaming with huge fish all jumping up waving their finns saying hey here I am & begging for a chance to bite.
When You pull out theres 12 fish on 1 hook & they almost never shake free even though they've been shown how.
Where would You troll?

I skipped Vista all together, didn't do it for me. But that would be something to check off my list of what I do not want to experience lol.

I miss my BSODs lol. I haven't had one since 2 years now maybe. And I have never had a BSOD in Vista despite of the fact that I literally slaughter it everyday with my hyper multitasking habits. Fingers crossed though!

Sweet, how do you reckon I put it on my netbook?

James, there's nothing hard in linux. Try Ubuntu 9.04. It is so simple. And the documentation/ will help you and guide you through the process of everything. It is SO easy and most things you need are probably included. It will work immediately.

Hmmm... The more and more I hear about linux I want to use it but I have no one beside me to run me throught the basic's lik ehow to install a program etc.

Oddly enough, the last BSOD I had was running Maya 6.0 on a GeForce2. Not the best machine to render graphics on. XD That was about 8 years ago.

Franklin: Linux works... until you get the BSOD(black screen of death) "Cannot find Kernel, error loading."
