Olympic Ceremony Hit By BSOD

The Beijing Olympics opening ceremony which featured 14,000 performers depicting 5000 years of Chinese history ended up by depicting a little piece of modern western culture: a Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death.

The BSOD screen was projected onto the roof of the National Stadium during the grand finale to the four-hour spectacular as veteran Chinese gymnast Li Ning, suspended 70 metres above the stadium floor, jogged towards the Olympic torch.

Bill Gates and his family attended several of the Olympic events, but it hasn't been confirmed yet if he attended this one.

Sarcastically enough, Lenovo chairman, Yang Yuanqing, was quoted saying that they used Windows XP instead Windows Vista because " it's (Windows Vista) not stable, it could have some problems".
