BSOD through the last few ages.

Windows has gone through many changes over the years, but one feature has remained comfortingly consistent: the Blue Screen of Death. Otherwise known as a system freeze, the BSOD is well known to Windows users the world over. Have a look at these more unlikely BSOD sightings.

A common sight to anyone who used Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME regularly. The BSOD would pop up whenever a floppy disk was removed too soon, or a keyboard was unplugged at the wrong time, or when RAM chips started to fail.

Thevery first Blue Screen of Death wasn't actually a "stop error." It occurred in Windows 1.1, and only when the system crashed during the boot process.

This phenomenon crosses linguistic lines: the Germans have their own BSOD

Certain versions of Windows could be programmed to write debugging information whenever spitting out a BSOD..

Here come the latest,

Early beta versions of Windows Vista (dubbed "Longhorn") displayed a Red Screen of Death when boot errors were encountered. The red screen was a rare treat for Longhorn testers -- all other crashes in the OS brought up the familiar blue screen. The final version of Vista preserves the BSOD legacy for the next generation..

Apple's answer to the BSOD is the Kernel Panic error that results when Mac OS X encounters a fatal software or hardware error. Kernel Panic errors are seen on all Unix-based operating systems.
