Microsoft goes for the blue

Things weren’t exactly looking up for Team Redmond in Beijing during the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Of course, if you weren’t looking up, you may not have noticed the notorious Blue Screen of Death captured by The Register here.

What’s more, some of the comments in the story that this was “shopped” defy reason — I don’t think the best of the best of the best in Photoshop can do it, let alone a superstar in Gimp. Apparently they used XP and not Vista for the opening ceremonies, so perhaps in a backwards sort of way it is a promotion of Vista by our friends in suburban Seattle.

Time will tell.
