BSOD at the Beijing Opening? Not quite…

A blogger onsite at the opening caught a couple of shots of one of the huge displays surrounding the stadium at the Beijing Opening for the 2008 Olympics.

While the typical Microsoft Naysayers are blasting BSOD jokes over one of the screens displaying blue with white text at the opening of the Beijing Olympics, it is, in fact, not OS troubles, but hardware (this error screen shows up as a prevention, stopping potential system damage; caused in this case by some USER error or hardware/driver error and not Windows OS)

Regardless…I wonder how many people Balmer called on the carpet over this mishap?
