    Brilliant... simply brilliant!

    http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cg...019EST0249.DTL

    During a demonstration of digital photography with a soon-to-be-released Nikon camera, a Windows Media Center PC froze and wouldn't respond to Gates' pushing of the remote control.

    Later in the 90-minute presentation, a product manager demonstrated the ostensible user-friendliness of a video game expected to hit retail stores in April, Forza Motor Sport. But instead of configuring a custom-designed race car, the computer monitor displayed the dreaded "blue screen of death" and warned, "out of system memory."

    Ever see the video where a microsoft employee thanked Gates for the need for alt+ctrl+delete during a T.V. show interview? The look was priceless

    I saw a video where they were promoting Windows (95 or 98) and they got the blue screen of death. Pretty embarassing, but what was great about it was that Bill covered it nicely and jokingly said "Well, this is the reason we haven't released this quite yet" or something to that effect. The way he put it really was a nice save.

    And why is it then censored?

    What would be more vulgar than calling someone by that?

    Not really. He's a nice, funny guy. There's just too much boring anti-Microsoftness around here for people to realize that.
