Apple BSOD in Leopard

I’m sure those apple developers though it was very funny – they gave any Windows machines on your network a nice icon with an innocent looking blue screen.

But another feature of Leopard is that you can view the icons up to a resolution of 512X512 and at this size the full detail is clear – Its a Windows 95 Blue Screen of Death.
