Olympics opening featured blue screen of death

Heh. Rather amused that the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) made an appearance at the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

This is the error screen that pops up on Windows computers giving you no option but to reboot your computer.

This might be the most prominent sighting of the BSOD yet, projected onto a stadium wall at an event watched by 15% of the world's population.

There was one saving grace though. Microsoft founder and near monopoly profiteer Bill Gates has been spotted at a number of Olympic events, so there is a good chance he was at the opening ceremony. I imagine Bill Gates would have recognised the BSOD immediately.
