Well... I was just browsing the BSOD/RSOD article on Wikipedia, when I saw a screenshot of a Vista RSOD.

The screenshot is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Longhorn_RSoD.png .

However, there's something especially funny in that screenshot - it has a typo! Instead of "execution", it says "exectuion"! :D

Some one at Microsoft didn't proof-read Vista well enough? :D

RSoD's don't exist anymore, BOOTMGR errors just display white on black.

same here, red makes it more clear to the average user that it is an error at first
