Rainbow replacement for Blue Screen of Death launched

Windows crashes to appear in iMac colours

A US programmer has come up with a unique cure for Windows' infamous Blue Screen of Death', according to a report on Maximum PC magazine's Web site. BSOD Properties Well, sort of. Nathan Lineback's neat Visual Basic application, BSOD Properties, won't stop your PC from crashing, but it does let you express yourself by allowing you to chose you favourite colour for Windows' irritating interruptions. Green Screen of Death, Red Screen of Death, even a Black Screen of Death are possible, according to Lineback. Alas, while the software works fine on Windows 95/98, NT users won't have much joy, admitted Lineback. "This program makes use of some old Windows 3.1 options in the system.ini file that have been long forgotten, but are still present in Windows 95," he said. ® BSOD Properties is available here
