Vista defending itself against Ubuntu

I know I've been quiet for a little bit, but I had to post this picture. I bought a new laptop yesterday (which came with a "bad battery" according to Toshiba, meaning I had to charge it overnight as punishment or something). I played with Vista for about 3 hours, determined to give it a chance. It is beyond awful. I mean, you can't even organize your own start menu! That's just first on the list of woes. But anyway, I decided to partition and install ubuntu. I'm guessing Vista has some kind of self-defense mechanism which caused an updated version of the blue screen of death...

That's awesome that Windows has an actual event called BlueScreen.

I went through the exact same thing a few months ago (bought a new laptop, struggled with Vista, installed Ubuntu).

Just imagine how bad Vista could have been if M$ had any longer to develop it!

Its windows defense against the black arts (Anything microsoft doesn't understand must be magic). How can any operation system run without being rebooted at least once per day?
