Why? I think it would be a funny remark from a better IT-Era.
Sadly Commodore where resting on their laurels and didnt did something with the technology they had. It was superior to the one we are using now, IMO.

But we will see, compiling ReactOS on a PPC-Driven Amiga *g*
Then i get windows AND the guru *bg*

I think something more structured as far as appearance and description to the end user will become of higher value as ROS becomes more end usable.

While you guys are busy not taking stuff seriously, you might want to take a look at my suggestions over at the roswiki.

sure i agree on that, but you don't have to clone whole winNT bsod,
give us something more in reactos ;)

btw, i invented a patent in my bsod screen:

"a method of saving visual result given at system crash to the user to disk using computer's input device"

OMG :shock:

well i won't patent it, free for all!! :)

Yes this was my first thought! Amiga Guru Meditation, perhaps it should be chandged to something like:
"Holy man is praying don't disturb..." or
"Walking an the water, did a Peter..." or
"Like the bear, hibernating..." or
"Took an unplanned supernap..."

The important thing is: Not blue - so we can say: ROS has no bluescreens ;-)

I would choose before every bluescreen a random color, and all persons are happy ;-)

MS got that before you, and judging by the fact that a large number of OSes have it now and noones suing them it's in the opn.

An informative, yet non-stone-dead-boring Screen O' Death would be a welcomed change. Granted, I don't see BSOD much anymore, but still ....

Maybe a contest or something ;-)

Yes, in fact, mouse input is normally handled/translated to messages by the kernel component win32k.sys. The problem is that when you get a BSOD, your system is sick, something must be very wrong otherwise you wouldn't have gotten that BSOD. Retrieving mouse input actually excercises a lot of the kernel, so that wouldn't be a very good idea when the kernel is sick.
