Stands for blue screen of death

A commonly misunderstood error message on windows systems that does not mean a crash has occured, rather it warns you of a problem on the system, tells you what the problem is, what to do about it, and shuts down the OS to prevent damage.

Another common mistake associated with the BSOD is that all your unsaved data is gone afterwards. not true. all new windows systems have a feature called Recovery which allows you to recover unsaved files after a BSOD.

Thanks to a feature called safe mode, users have the ability to delete or repair damaged or infected files after a BSOD without damage being done to their system.

Unlike Windows, Mac OSX does not have a warning screen telling you of a problem, it just continues running until a crash occurs.
well i got a BSOD and it appears as though that file i downloaded has a fatal virus. better go into safe mode and delete it.

Blue Screen of Death. The last thing any PC user wants to see. Often happens when the CPU or RAM is overclocked due to a program, but more often than not it happens when you try to run a program that your shiny new 500 Terrabite Jet-engine powered computer hasn't seen before. (i.e a Super Mario Game from the 90s)
Try to run Age of Mythology on a super computer. There's your example of a BSOD.

Blue Screen of Death. Comes from using cheap Chinese hardware with poorly written drivers in Windows (mostly) 9X/ME that will not work at all in Linux and can't even be placed in a Mac.
I got a BSOD because I was using a Mitsui CHD93 CD-RW drive on a VIA Kelut mobo with 64 megs of Rosewill RAM I got from my neighbor in Windows ME. Time to party like it's 1979 with LINUX (that will solve my problems)
