Blue Screen of Deaths Oil Spill

Und wer ist nun Schuld am Ölfleck im Golf von Mexiko? Natürlich Microsoft und ihr Windows-Murks. Hat jetzt auch wirklich keiner was anderes erwartet, oder?

A computer that monitored drilling operations on the Deepwater Horizon had been freezing with a "blue screen of death" prior to the explosion that sank the oil rig last April, the chief electronics technician aboard testified Friday at a federal hearing.

"Blue screen of death," or BSOD, is a term most often used to describe the display shown by Microsoft Windows after a serious crash that has incapacitated a PC.
